Masterworks Chamber Music Coaching
Masterworks Chamber Music Coaching“I feel especially blessed to have been included in the WSO (now The Wisconsin Philharmonic) Chamber Ensemble Program for the past two years. I have learned a great deal from both the coaches we had, and I really enjoyed working on a professional level with them. I was inspired by their musicianship and knowledge, and working with them has made me a better performer and musician in general.” -Student at Kettle Moraine High School
This project promotes the study of chamber music by assigning a musician of The Wisconsin Philharmonic to a high school as an ensemble coach. The Wisconsin Philharmonic coach, high school string teacher and student musicians decide what repertoire to study during the year. The coach spends five sessions with the group, which is expected to perform the work selected for the entire high school orchestra and in a concert setting.
The Wisconsin Philharmonic will host its annual Masterworks String Ensemble Festival at a date to be announced. Students from Arrowhead, Kettle Moraine, Mukwonago, New Berlin Eisenhower, New Berlin West, Waukesha North, Waukesha South, and Waukesha West High Schools will be featured. Admission is free.
