Chamber music is a strong and vital component of the performance studies program giving students the opportunity to perform in a diverse group of small ensembles. Several student ensembles have won prizes in major chamber music competitions.

This is a class required for all performance majors while other students may take the class with permission from the program coordinator. Auditions are not required.
