(.5 credit) Austin Arts Center 102

Nancy Curran, Coordinator/ nancy.curran@trincoll.edu

Mode: In Person

The Trinity College Chamber Ensembles Program is a half-credit course that supports the study and performance of music from five centuries of chamber music repertoire. Each semester, groups are formed and assigned a professional musical coach and repertoire to study and prepare for performance. The goal of the program is to provide the students with an opportunity to survey the vast literature of chamber music and to receive training in ensemble playing skills. We hope to be able to stream our final rehearsals.

Audition required–Contact Ms. Curran for a Remote Audition or if you have questions. Auditions are approximately fifteen minutes and include a prepared piece; scales; and sight-reading.

Jazz is America’s own art form! The Jazz Ensemble studies and performs the compositions of Ellington, Monk, Coltrane, Hancock, and others, as well as original works by Professor Allen and the group members. Styles span the gamut of jazz history, from traditional swing to fusion and funk. We will work hard on improving individually and as a group, with focus on creative improvising, group interplay, and solid grooves.

Membership is by audition. Contact Professor Allen and attend first class to audition.
