Our chamber music ensembles run on a full academic year schedule. 

Auditions - 2023 Auditions begin March 1!

Pre-formed groups are welcome and interested students should email directly.  For any other questions, contact

Please note that the NEC Prep tries their best to place all students who audition into chamber groups. However, appropriate chamber groups are only formed if other students of similar age, skill level, and Saturday time availability audition.
