Chamber Music (8-12 grades)

For more experienced students, we have our Chamber Music program. This takes place at Roman Catholic High School after school but happens only a few days each week. Chamber Music is intended for intermediate to advanced level players. There is no age requirement, but typically students range from grades 8-12 with at least 2 years of playing experience.
