Chamber Music Academy

Advanced group instruction for fluent music readers.

This collaborative music program gives fluent music readers through high school age advanced instruction in developing musical skills by playing with their peers and working with experienced professional musicians. All students work in a chamber music group (trio, quartet, etc.), and participate in one of our two chamber orchestras led by Michael Davis, former concertmaster of the Louisville Symphony Orchestra or violist Glesse Collet.

In addition, jazz and improvisation are offered. If you are interested in being in a small jazz or world music group, we will do our best to place you with like-minded students, at your performance level, with a great coach ready to inspire and help you explore your potential. You

Throughout both semesters, master classes with our faculty and occasional visiting artists. Workshops with Garden Concert Series musicians will be available April through September 2023.

Select students perform in our annual Chamber Music Mixer in January or February with professional chamber musicians and the coaches who work with them throughout the semester. If chosen to perform, availability for this performance is required.

We follow Poudre School District calendar and school closures.

Please contact Jephta Bernstein to participate as a sponsor or donor, financially or through the donation of pianos and other instruments.
