2018 Trio Céleste's Chamber Music Festival

Trio Céleste's Chamber Music Festival


July 5-July 13



Ages 12-19


Join one of the most unique and rewarding musical experiences available in Southern California!  Explore masterpieces in the chamber music repertoire while working with world-renowned faculty.

Work alongside our resident ensemble Trio Céleste as you build upon your technique towards becoming a well-rounded musician.  Students will be divided based on ensembles, participating in group workshops, personalized coaching and individual practice.  String, wind, and pianists are all welcome to attend.  The Academy will end in a final showcase performance for family and friends (more details to be shared).

Please note that while there is no formal audition for acceptance into the program, we do ask that students submit a personal statement and attend an in-person 'audition'.  These supplemental items are used by our instructors to asses individual levels and goals in order to properly structure ensembles and lesson plans.

Scholarships and Financial Aid are available!
