NECP ACES is 5 days of intensive side-by-side chamber music study, rehearsal, and performance with the core members of New England Chamber Players as artist faculty.
In our inaugural year, this program is open to adult (18+) woodwind players with an interest in studying chamber performance but without professional performance aspirations.
We will be selecting 2 flutists, 2 oboists, 2 clarinetists, 2 bassoonists, and 2 horn players to create two woodwind quintets.
Pre-formed wind quintets are also invited to apply.
Participants will receive:
1 hour of private instruction with the NECP artist-faculty member on your instrument.
5 hours of rehearsal/coaching with a wind quintet and members of NECP culminating in a public/streamed performance Saturday, August 28th at 2 pm.
5 hours of coaching/rehearsal of a dectet side-by-side with NECP artist faculty culminating in a public/streamed performance.
Tuition is $350 for the entire period.
Room and board are not provided.
All participants and faculty will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID 19 in order to participate for the safety of all involved.
All sessions will take place at Hope Central Church (85 Seaverns Avenue Jamaica Plain, MA).
Convenient to public transit (MBTA Orange Line, Green Street stop) or street parking is available.
This program has been made possible, in part, with support from ACMP Associated Chamber Music Players.
