The events are free and open to the public; no tickets are required, and children are welcome. For more information, call the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158 or visit music.yale.edu.
ABOUT STUDENT CHAMBER MUSIC AT YSM
The Yale School of Music is unique in that all performance faculty coach chamber music, and all students are involved in chamber music for their entire tenure at the School. Ensembles come together each semester and receive weekly coachings from distinguished faculty and guest artists. Chamber groups often perform in the Lunchtime Chamber Music concerts, which take place at both Morse Recital Hall and the Center for British Art, and in the Vista series, in which performances are enhanced by spoken commentary on the music. Students also take part in the annual chamber music competition, whose winners are featured in an annual concert on the Oneppo Chamber Music Series.
