SCV CHAMBER MUSIC ENSEMBLE
Directed by Rachel Iba, MFA
Saturdays, 1pm - 3pm
College of the Canyons - Valencia Campus
The SCVYO Foundation is excited to bring
Chamber Music to our course syllabus,
beginning Spring, 2017. Students will become
familiar with standard chamber music repertoire,
take personal responsibility for their part within
an ensemble, as well as develop leadership, rehearsal
and communication skills. Students will rehearse in
small groups and participate in 'work in progress'
performances, community outreach and take part
in the large concert at the end of the semester.
🎵 Concurrent enrollment in Orchestra or Symphony is required.
The typical Chamber Music student has a minimum of 2 years experience. Placement in ensembles is based on ability as determined by the Chamber Music Director.
