In addition to participating in one of the large instrumental ensembles, students may elect to participate in a chamber ensemble. This provides an opportunity for exceptional musicians to refine their musical skills and earn additional course credit. Various chamber ensembles include string quartet, piano duets, piano quintet, saxophone quartet, clarinet quartet, woodwind quintet, brass quintet, and many other possibilities. Ensembles are expected to rehearse with a faculty coach once a week and once on their own. Ensembles culminate their semester’s work at the Chamber Ensembles concert.


Congratulations to Yitian Xiao for winning this year’s competition! Hear Yitian perform the first movement of Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 with the GTSO on February 23 at the Ferst Center.
