Youth Summer Chamber Workshop

Youth Chamber Music Workshops
(Ages 9-18)

Discover the thrill of playing in a small ensemble! Participants explore new repertoire, build musicianship, and make friends through music. Rehearse with an experienced chamber music coach, practice parts individually and as a group, engage in fun warm-up games, and prepare for a final festival performance. Two years of private study is required for participation, and placement auditions begin in mid-March. In addition to this weeklong workshop, chamber groups may be formed to meet weekly throughout the summer, with flexible scheduling available.

The Beatles Summer Project-webThe Beatles Summer Project

The Beatles Summer Project launches its third season with a change of albums. With two performances of Sgt. Pepper under our belts, this August we will rehearse and perform The Beatles’ final masterpiece, Abbey Road. Join fifty musicians from Brookline and beyond to perform the album from beginning to end.

Singers, guitarists, pianists, drummers, brass, woodwind, and string players of all ages and levels are welcome to join. Dividing the songs among a multitude of musicians means the time commitment for individual performers is quite reasonable, with only three weeknight rehearsals in July.

Performance: Sunday, August 7th, 4:00pm at the Brookline Teen Center (1pm call time)

For more information contact Jazz/Rock Ensembles Coordinator John Purcell at (617) 964-8868; jazzrockbms@gmail.com.
