NEC Continuing Education Chamber Music program becomes a core part of students’ social and artistic lives as players collaborate with other musicians who are as passionate as they are! All groups are coached by one of our faculty members for 14 hours each semester. Groups perform in one of NEC's performance halls at the end of each semester.

Chamber Ensembles through Continuing Education are offered at Intermediate and Advanced levels. Our chamber ensembles encompass the following areas: Strings, Woodwinds, Piano, Vocalists, Brass, Guitar and mixed ensembles. Students may apply for chamber music as individuals or as a pre-formed group. Prior to registering, placement into an ensemble is done through a placement audition scheduled through the NEC School of Continuing Education. To schedule an audition, please contact us at 617-585-1701, or email ContinuingEducation@necmusic.edu.
