Chamber Music Series Information

The Chamber Music Series program provides an opportunity for advanced Youth Symphony musicians to learn and perform chamber music in community settings. Participation is by either invitation or application. Musicians submit an application at registration. The YSSO Music Director selects musicians and forms the ensembles. Musicians selected to participate will be assigned to an ensemble based upon technical proficiency, level of musical development and the number and structure of the ensembles. It may not be possible to place all eligible and interested musicians in an ensemble.

Musicians are expected to know their parts and rehearse at least two times in addition to the scheduled coached rehearsals.

Some rehearsals for Chamber Music Series ensembles may be concurrent with regular YSSO rehearals and others will take place following the Fall Concert Series. Some ensembles may be asked to perform in other venues so musicians should be prepared to schedule additional rehearsals and learn additional repertoire.

The 2017-2018 Concert Season marks the organization's 30th Anniversary Season. The Chamber Music Series will be on hiatus so that the YSSO may present a special Youth Symphony & Youth Symphony Alumni Concert in December.
