Explore the world of chamber music with your friends this summer during ESYO’s summer string chamber music program. Sign up with your friends and create your chamber ensemble or sign up on your own, and ESYO will match you with a group of musicians who are as passionate about music as you.

Students meet three times a week for a 2.5 hour long session. Each session will include a 75 minute chamber music rehearsal, a coaching and a 75 minute string technique workshop. The groups will conclude the program with a performance on stage at Freedom Park in Scotia.

ESYO's String Chamber Music Summer Program is open to registered members of ESYO String Orchestra, Repertory Orchestra, and Symphony Orchestra, plus non-ESYO musicians NYSSMA level 4 & above.
