Mission Statement

Chamber Music Connect exists to create community among chamber music enthusiasts in Orange County. Participants are matched into small chamber groups that rehearse together, receive professional coaching, and perform together for masterclasses and concerts. CMC provides the opportunity for meaningful musical collaborations among chamber musicians in a congenial environment.

What We Do

After receiving applications, the CMC committee will place applicants into small chamber groups. The committee will oversee repertoire selections and will support members as they rehearse and prepare for successful concert performances. CMC provides the venue and publicity for an end of season concert where all chamber groups will perform.

What You Do

AJoin the community by completing the online registration form and by submitting a brief recording. Attend first meeting in November to connect with your chamber group. Perform in an optional Christmas season concert with your group. Meet at least 8 times during the spring semester to rehearse with your group including 2 coaching sessions. Attend or optionally perform in a professional masterclass. Perform in the final concert in May with other chamber music groups.
