Chamber Ensemble

Through the variety of small ensembles offered, trios and quartets are formed at the beginning of each semester. Literature is determined by each chamber music coach with input from ensemble members. Chamber groups perform each semester in string recitals, college ensemble performances and at various venues throughout the community.



    The orchestra has toured in Nassau, Bahamas with the National Youth Choir, and in Kraków, Poland.
