Welcome to the North Carolina Chamber Music Institute

Please check out our special link and wonderful video about  NCCMI...The Experience of Chamber Music.

What is the North Carolina Chamber Music Institute?

The North Carolina Chamber Music Institute (NCCMI) is an exciting program to give Triangle area music students the opportunity to enrich their playing and learning experiences through small group ensembles with professional music coaches and through public performance.

This program allows students to learn musical leadership and communication skills in a small group, and opens up repertoire only available to small chamber groups like string, wind and piano quartets.

Participants in the program learn to play as a team in professionally coached small group ensembles. This helps children to achieve a well-rounded musical education beyond solo and orchestral playing.

How do I participate?

NCCMI is open to music students from early advanced players through advanced players, typically ranging in age from 8 to 18. Students accepted into the program will be placed in chamber groups with other students at their playing level.

Auditions are held each May, June and August and are required for acceptance. You can submit an application through our online form via our web site at www.ncchambermusic.org.

We operate on an October to April program, which will include 16 coaching sessions, 16 student-led rehearsals, recitals, outreach, performance review, master classes and workshops.

NCCMI is an equal opportunity not-for-profit corporation and encourages applications from all demographic groups. Some financial aid is available.

Important time issues!

Auditions are by appointment only and are in May and June (Early Bird) and mid-August (for regular applicants).
