Calling string, winds, and piano players to join CMC Chamber Music Ensembles

March 17, 2023

Whether you are an advanced beginner or an accomplished amateur musician, CMC’s chamber music program offers an opportunity to develop your musicianship and technique as well as the chance to play with others. Groups are composed of two to five students of compatible levels. Director Katrina Wreede works with students to match them with CMC faculty coaches and other students of similar level and musical interests to create well-matched groups to take ensemble playing to the next level. For Spring Quarter, which starts the first week of April, there are several preformed groups seeking additional players.

To inquire about a group, fill out the Chamber Music Inquiry Form and email Katie Wreede at
