Greater San Diego Chamber Music Festival

Held on the beautiful University of San Diego campus, the Chamber Music Festival was established by Dr. Angela Yeung in the summer of 2006. The Greater San Diego Music Coterie now co-sponsors both the Winter and the Summer Festivals along with the USD Department of Music, providing a unique opportunity for chamber-music making and public performance for musicians of all ages and technical levels in an intensive yet non-competitive environment. With coaching provided by members of the San Diego Symphony and faculty members from the USD Music Department, experienced chamber musicians enjoy the challenge of an intense coaching and performance schedule; those of most advanced musical levels may perform along with the coaches at concerts. Musicians with little or no chamber music experience appreciate the careful grouping of ensembles, selection of pieces, and guidance by experienced coaches. The gains from each festival surpass those of the chamber music experience alone: musical appetites, self-confidence, and spirit of teamwork are sparked, and lasting friendships are formed.
The Chamber Music Festivals are open to individuals or pre-formed groups (e.g. duet, trio, quartet, etc), and auditing is welcome. Student participants must be taking private lessons on their primary instrument in order to apply. On-campus housing is available for participants in the Summer Festival.
Volunteering and donations to the Festivals are most welcome. Donations are tax-deductible as allowable by law. Please contact Dr. Angela Yeung at firstname.lastname@example.org.
