In order to play chamber music, young musicians must build skills and develop themselves as solo musicians first. We know, at CMC, the better you get at your instrument, the more fun you can have playing chamber music. That’s why we are presenting CMC SOLOS - concerts for the young musician to try out their solo pieces in a supportive environment. Each session will be monitored by a faculty member and each performer will receive comments to help them grow as performing artists. Participants are guaranteed two performances per semester or four if they sign up for the year. CMC SOLOS is open to all musicians who would like to develop their performing abilities. Current CMC students are offered SOLOS at a discounted rate.
There are two semesters of SOLOS:
First Semester: October 26, 2019 - January 11, 2020
Second Semester: January 25, 2020 - May, 2020 (Exact date TBA)
Each semester you sign up, you will have a maximum of two performances. Please check the dates for all SOLOS performances.
Participation fee per semester:
$50.00 for CMC Students
$75.00 for non-CMC Students
Performances take place on select Saturdays from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. in Domingo Hall (unless otherwise noted) at:
The National Opera Center
330 Seventh Ave between 28th and 29th St.
