On four consecutive Thursday nights, starting June 19 at 7:30 p.m., chamber music will resonate throughout Burgdorff Hall in New Providence as NJIO’s Chamber Music Workshop gets under way. 

The workshop will provide professional coaching for brass, woodwind, string players and pianists who would like to participate in a chamber ensemble. Playing chamber music under the guidance of a coach is an excellent way for musicians to tune up their technique and expand their repertoire.

Chamber music is considered by many musicians to provide the perfect environment for collaborative music making. It provides an opportunity for individual musical expression as well as an intimate way for several musical voices to combine in a in a way that is larger than each individual. Chamber music can be performed across a wide range of skill levels ranging from beginners to experienced musicians.

The workshop participants will span all ages. The musicians will be grouped into several chamber ensembles that are appropriate for their abilities and instruments. Whether you are a first time or an experienced chamber musician, this program will provide professional coaching on exciting chamber repertoire, in a non-competitive atmosphere provided for making beautiful chamber music.

Marty Steinberg, Principal Cellist with the New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra and professional chamber musician will direct the workshop. Each chamber ensemble will be mentored by professional chamber coaches. Ensembles for strings, woodwinds, brass and pianists are forming soon. The registration deadline for the first session is June 12th.  A second session of chamber music runs four consecutive Thursday evenings beginning July 17th. If you are interested in the second session, please call for the details.
