Ensemble playing and more!

Performing Ensembles

Experience the thrill of team music-making!

Joining a performing ensemble is among the most exciting ways to explore music of any genre in greater depth and to share the experience with fellow musicians in a social, collaborative setting. BMS chamber, jazz, and rock ensembles for youth and adults offer weekly or bi-weekly rehearsals and multiple performance opportunities throughout the year. Small ensemble playing further reinforces the technical and musical skills aspiring musicians need for solo performing and large band or orchestra participation. 

Placement in an ensemble is based on an informal placement audition. Each group will receive weekly coaching from one of our distinguished faculty members.
