What is it?
A 6-week chamber music course for higher level students with performance outcome and leadership training.
New in 2023, this program seeks to attract the higher level student and those potentially seeking future study in music at tertiary level. In the Intensive program, our focus is on two main outcomes:
Skills development in chamber music focusing on professional level repertoire
Leadership building through group discussion and set tasks. Students will be asked to contribute to discussions and reflections around the music and how they think it should be performed. They will also be given tools and mentorship to assist them with the task of organising and presenting their own concert.
This program offers a hybrid of online and in person experiences to make effective use of students' busy schedules.
The program also aims to set up well balanced ensembles that have potential to continue playing together with continued support through WAYACHAMP. These ensembles would be ideal for entries into local and national competitions as well as for skills development and enjoyment.
15 places only, subject to audition:
Violin = 7 places
Viola = 3 places
Cello = 4 places
Piano = 1 place
These will form 3 string quartets and one piano trio
Students must be under 18
Planning is underway to hold the next Intensive mid-2024
