This is an exciting time to be apart of the AWSOM family! In July we rolled out our official Chamber Ensemble Program, which gives our students the opportunity to make music with other students! The possible instrument combinations are endless, and the music written for these groups is quite fun! Each chamber music ensemble will meet once a week with their coach (one of AWSOM's awesome teachers). It is a great way to meet other like-minded musicians, make some fantastic music, and learn in a group atmosphere!
Interested in knowing more about this opportunity? Check out the information on our website www.awsom.info/Chamber
Also, feel free to ask your current lesson teacher about it. Teachers are a great resource on how participating in a chamber ensemble will benefit you and specific musical and educational goals! Here at AWSOM, we are always trying to new and innovative ways to make learning music fun, interesting, and motivating!
For an example of what the Chamber Ensemble Program can offer (and where you can end up performing!), check out video below of Kate performing Mozart's Sonata for Two Bassoons, K. 292 at the Vianden International Music Festival in Luxembourg, Aug. 2015.
