The CSOYO Chamber Ensemble Program is open to members of the Symphony. Ensembles are formed in the Fall and Spring Semesters based on interest, instrumentation, musicianship and availability. The Chamber Ensembles meet each Monday prior to regular CSOYO rehearsal, from 4:45 – 5:45 PM, with a professional musician as their coach. Musicians must be strong individual players who are interested in honing the skills of listening, blending, controlling tempo and staying together without a conductor. Ensembles will be invited to perform in the lobby of the Tivoli before a CSO Masterworks concert, and may have other performance opportunities throughout the season. The Fall ensembles perform on the Holiday Concert in December, and the Spring Ensembles perform on the Dessert Concert in April. Attendance is MANDATORY at all Chamber Ensemble rehearsals. Please check the calendar before you apply.
