String Chamber Ensembles

The String Chamber Ensemble class gives students an opportunity to study and perform major works while focusing on the development of their chamber music skills. Groups are coached once per week by Department faculty, but outside rehearsals are also necessary. Each group performs at an end-of-semester concert, and additional performance opportunities are available. Once accepted by audition, students are placed in groups with other students of like ability.

Pre-formed groups can usually be accommodated, as well as individual returning students, provided they notify Prof. David Sariti (djs6k) of their interest by noon on Thursday, August, 29.  Late requests may not be accommodated.

New students who wish to audition can find more information on our auditions page.  Questions should be addressed to Prof. David Sariti (
