Summer programs at New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra (NJIO) begin on June 8th with the first of two Chamber Music Workshops.  These workshops provide the perfect opportunity for music students of all ages and abilities to explore the artistry of chamber music while gaining confidence and skills as a musician.  Led by NJIO’s Artistic Director Warren Cohen, this program offers professional chamber coaching in a non-competitive atmosphere.

Chamber Music Workshops are open to string, woodwind, brass and piano players.  We encourage both individual musicians and established groups to participate in the workshop.  Whether this is your first chamber music experience, you are an individual that wants to expand your chamber repertoire, or are anxious to explore an ambitious chamber piece with a group of friends, this workshop is for you!

Thursday evenings in August, NJIO offers the Summer String Studio.  This studio prepares string musicians in school, youth or community orchestras for the upcoming season with instruction in bowing, rhythmic integrity, sight reading, intonation, and score reading.  It is also great for those who want to improve their musicianship.
