Our Chamber Music Program is a highlight for participants in the Music House program. Musicians are assigned chamber groups and repertoire based on audition submissions, and are expected to prepare major chamber works on a professional level. Each chamber group will have at least 9 hours of coaching by members of The Philadelphia Orchestra, in additional to ample rehearsal time throughout the 17-day Festival.
The culmination of these efforts is celebrated in our annual festival-ending Chamber Music Program Concert, typically held on the last day of the Festival.
