New Adult Chamber Music Program!

We are very excited to announce the creation of a new program for adult musicians, the Chamber Music Guild.

Guild membership is structured to accommodate different needs and schedules. Guild members will be coached by members of the dynamic Skyros Quartet. To become part of the Guild, you will need to form a chamber ensemble of at least trio size, and as large as an octet, and purchase a package of coaching sessions. Coaching will take place at a mutually agreed upon location and at a time you and the coaches negotiate with the rest of your ensemble.

Pricing per semester
3 sessions $125 per participant
4 sessions $160 per participant
6 sessions $200 per participant

For more details on the program, go to the Chamber Music Guild page.

Registration is open now for Icicle Creek!

Registration is open for the 7th Annual Adult Chamber Music Retreat, at the beautiful Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, in Leavenworth, Washington.

Camp starts Thursday evening with a reception and socializing, initial rehearsal without coach, followed by informal ad-hoc playing. Intensive coaching begins Friday morning and continues through Sunday morning, culminating in a Participants Performance Sunday afternoon before departure.

ECCHO-launch-partyWe had a wonderful time at our launch party for ECCHO, the Emerald City Chamber Music Organization, our new in-school chamber music program. The Skyros Quartet performed an exciting concert and introduced the new program, which is operating as a pilot program at Washington Middle School this semester, in preparation for the full launch next fall.

We would like to extend special thanks to David Corry, for hosting the party in his beautiful home, and to Nota Bene Cellars for their generous donation of wine to the event.

Thank you also to our guests at the event for celebrating with us and for your generous financial donations.  And, thank you to all of the other people who have made gifts in support of the ECCHO program.

If you missed the party and would like to support ECCHO, you can donate online or mail a check to: PO Box 27164, Seattle, WA 98165. Thank you!
