Submit your audition now for the 2023-24 Winds and Brass Chamber Ensembles!
Deadline to submit video audition: Friday December 1, 2023
These are IN-PERSON ensembles, held at the VSO School
The winds and brass chamber ensembles program provides a place for musicians to meet new friends, improve on their own instruments, and learn the intricacies of performing with other musicians in a supportive setting. Each winds and brass chamber ensemble will be coached by one of our talented faculty, giving insight and musical guidance as the chamber ensemble becomes more experienced.
We welcome everyone who is 12 years and older with 1+ years of playing experience on any woodwind or brass instrument to audition.
Students will be placed in a chamber ensemble that will best fit them based on their age, instrument, and experience. There are many variations of chamber ensembles for winds and brass players, so rest assured that there will be a place for you! Variations include, but are not limited to: woodwind quartets, brass quartets, saxophone quartets, reed quintets, trios, and many, many more!
