Teaching Ensembles

Join an ensemble! Play great music with other musicians! Make new friends!

We will return to in-person ensembles for fall 2021!  View our Covid-19 policies 

Our ensembles have a dual goal of providing excellent music training and fostering a relaxed setting for musical socializing.
