CSOYO Chamber Ensembles

CSOYO CHAMBER ENSEMBLES

Each year in August and January, Symphony members may apply for placement in a Chamber Ensemble. Ensembles will be formed by Kayoko Dan and Gary Wilkes, based on:

  • skill level of the musician
  • other applicants
  • available repertoire
  • chair seating
  • CSOYO attendance record
  • Director’s recommendation

These ensembles will be assigned a professional musician as a coach, and will rehearse on Monday evenings from 4:45 – 5:45 PM prior to regularly scheduled CSOYO rehearsals. Coaches may schedule additional rehearsals as needed. Attendance is mandatory.

Ensembles will perform prior to CSO Masterworks concerts at the Tivoli, and on a special End of Semester Concert in December and in April. Occasionally, ensembles will be invited to play for other organizations in town as ensemble members are available, which provides great experience for the musicians and community exposure for the CSOYO. The full rehearsal and performance calendar and application can be found below. There is no additional charge to participate in a chamber ensemble.

Interested applicants in Symphony can complete the online application form found below the schedule.
