Lessons and Structure
Chamber Music Coaching and Performance
Live ensemble playing is back! Participants play in two groups with faculty and receive daily coaching. The week of camp culminates in a public performance.
ChamberFest features daily workshops on a variety of subjects to help participants explore their artistry. These include: improvisation, performance style, Feldenkreis movement, musical entrepreneurship, and social justice in music-making.
Private one-hour lessons are available with our world-class faculty for an additional fee. Participants may choose to take one or more lessons during the week.
COVID Protocol and Safety Precautions
Please note, ChamberFest administrators will keep abreast of health and safety precautions in Massachusetts. Our new space at Trinity Lutheran Church allows for proper 6-ft. social distancing, ventilation, and will be cleaned daily. All participants are required to wear masks at all times. Many activities take place outside as weather permits. Participants are required to complete an online health survey before attending ChamberFest each day.
With a private lesson, $775
Limited financial aid is available
Due to COVID restrictions, we are not able to offer overnight options on campus. We have secured a group rate of $80 per night at the Hilton Garden Inn, just a short walk from Trinity Lutheran Church. Learn more.
