Our chamber groups are the hallmark of the CYMG program, as they are the main ambassadors of CYMG.  Our Chamber Groups Program is open to intermediate to advanced students with at least 4 years of experience. Students are placed in chamber groups (small ensembles) based on instrumentation and ability level as demonstrated through an audition or playing sample.

Chamber Groups are coached by our professional teaching artists.  Students will strengthen their skills and build confidence as they are responsible for learning their own parts while developing their small ensemble playing skills.  They will play a variety of repertoire and be provided with numerous opportunities to perform for the community. Past performances include: Huntington Library Members’ Holiday Event, Freedom Writers Foundation documentary screening, St. Michael’s School Fundraiser, Mt. Washington School Save the Arts Fundraiser, Kingsley Manor assisted living Holiday Recital, and several fancy weddings at the LA Athletic Club and Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach!

Placement Auditions: By appointment OR send a link to a video of the student performing a 2-3 minute solo piece to president@cymg.org.
