Submit your audition now for the 2023-24 Chamber Music Program!
Deadline to submit video audition: Sunday July 30, 2023
These are IN-PERSON ensembles, held at the VSO School
The VSOSoM Chamber Music Program is directed by VSO Concertmaster Nicholas Wright. Students who audition will be matched with students of similar skill and availability, and grouped into small ensembles of 3-5 players. Each ensemble rehearses and performs specially-selected repertoire, and receives weekly coaching from chamber specialists amongst the VSO & SoM faculty.
Most chamber ensembles have 60min weekly rehearsals, however some advanced groups may register for 90min weekly rehearsals, which have a different fee set.
To apply to join a chamber ensemble, click on “submit your audition” and fill in the online form, including a link to a short video of you playing two scales and a piece. You will be contacted by the Ensembles Coordinator after the deadline, with details of your placement.
