Caltech's Chamber Music program provides weekly professional coachings and twice-yearly performance opportunities for approximately thirty small ensembles of varying instrumentation. Between 75 - 100 students participate each year. The enduring popularity of this program speaks to the kinship music and the sciences have enjoyed for centuries. 

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.
