Message from the Chamber Music Institute Director

Each year’s Fall CMI recitals represent a moment of promise. While the groups are presenting the culmination of two months of hard work, this is both an arrival and a midpoint: groups continue in second semester to enhance their own ensemble skills and with increased familiarity, learn to read and predict their colleagues’ playing styles. It’s truly special to see an ensemble grow together, and this concert gives us a chance to mark that growth along the path to the final concerts.

We are thrilled to finally welcome a live audience back into the Spartan Auditorium to join us, as well as friends from afar via livestream. Let’s celebrate the dedication and enthusiasm the students have shown this semester and take this joy and momentum into the preparation for next semester.

Thank you to CMI families and coaches for their support, and to our students for their engagement and hard work – and, of course, for sharing their beautiful music with us. It’s time to take the stage!

Roslyn Green
Chamber Music Institute Director
