Great things come in small packages! What kinds of things? Creative thinking, team-building, reasoning skills, leadership and awesome music! The LYO Master Artists Chamber Players is ready to launch and offer an array of chamber ensembles (quartets and quintets for strings, winds and brass) to students wishing to advance their musical education via a small group setting. These ensembles will be coached by the professional musicians of the NouLou Chamber Players (a majority of who are Louisville Orchestra musicians) with free performances being offered in an array of intimate performance location settings all over Metro-Louisville and Southern Indiana. There will even be a class in entrepreneurship to teach these young musicians how to present themselves to the public. Students regularly receive full band and large string ensembles opportunities within their school settings. Small, student-based chamber ensembles; however, are rarely offered. These chamber ensembles offer young musicians the opportunity to learn about making informed and independent musical decisions, group collaboration, personal leadership, non-verbal communication and business management. Chamber playing dramatically and quickly improves a musician’s solo and orchestral playing and also offers the opportunity for the young musician to give back to the community in a spirit of public support. Assistance for coaching fees, concert production, and musical supplies will be much appreciated. No gift is too small!
