Message from the Chamber Music Institute Director

It’s time for a spring triumph!

The work that goes in to a performance like this is immense. Families at home know the hours of practice, rehearsal, and lessons. But there’s something different about the difficulty of chamber music: it’a group laying the vulnerability of their own work and imaginations before each other in order to combine and create something and new. It’s a special challenge and today we get a glimpse of the rewards.

This set of concerts mark the first EYSO concert with no capacity restrictions since 2019. We’re thrilled to open up to even more family, friends, and community to share this experience live, while also being luck to include friends from afar via livestream.

These performances represent hours tuning, counting, clapping, repeating – as well as laughing, dreaming, striving and celebrating. Thank you for supporting the students in reaching this moment. And to our performers: congratulations!

Roslyn Green
Chamber Music Institute Director
