 Contact our office via email or at 617-492-8105 for more information about forming an ensemble.

Playing in a small ensemble is a wonderful opportunity to develop technique on your instrument while exploring new repertoire and working with others. Each ensemble will be formed based on experience and instrumentation and will consist of no more than 4 students. Each ensemble will work toward at least one performance at the end of the term. A placement audition is required to help with ensemble formation. Placement auditions will be held monthly. Please contact our office for more information.
