Instrumentalists are grouped into duets, trios, quartets, etc. with those of similar abilities, and rehearse weekly in preparation for public recitals, master classes, and other performance opportunities both on and off-campus.  

Ensembles perform a wide variety of music, from Classical string quartets to Romantic piano trios to twentieth-century music for winds.  The program also includes music for guitar ensemble, piano four hands, and two pianos.
