The chamber music coaching program at the Conference provides daily coaching for participants by faculty members. Participants in coached groups are carefully matched by repertoire preference (if stated) and by compatibility. Works are assigned several weeks before the Conference, and participants are expected to practice their parts thoroughly and to study scores in advance of attending.

In 2021, each participant will receive 21 hours of coaching on four works—the format for weeks 2, 3, and 4 in other years—but other aspects of the coaching program will be modified due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For 2021:


The Chamber Music Program and other programs of the Chamber Music Conference are made possible, in part, by support from ACMP Associated Chamber Music Players, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, the Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University, and generous contributions from individuals.
