Other Musical Activities

Musical activities at the Conference extend beyond the scheduled coaching sessions, embracing multiple opportunities to play, listen, and learn about music.

The activities described on this page occur in all weeks of the Conference, unless otherwise noted.

Informal Ensemble Playing

During free, unscheduled time, participants and auditors can form their own ensembles with new and old musical friends. How much or how little you participate in informal playing is completely up to you.

The Conference's extensive library of parts for over 1,000 works is available to the Conference community for informal playing.


The Conference faculty presents chamber music concerts on Wednesday and Saturday of each week.

See the Concert Series page.

Open Rehearsals

The Conference community is invited to attend open rehearsals, as faculty groups prepare for performances on the Conference Concert Series.

Participant Musicales

Informal musicales on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons provide participants the opportunity to perform works on which they have been coached during the week.

Performance is optional; a group performs if all members wish to and the Music Director chooses to include the group on the program.
