Adelaide Chamber Music School is a residential school with a full program of rehearsals, tutorials and workshops. The school culminates with a public performance by all participants on the final day.
In addition participants will have opportunities to socialise and to play in other ad hoc groups.
ACMS is open to chamber musicians over the age of 18. In 2017 we are seeking applications from string players and string-based groups. There is no specific minimum standard of proficiency but participants should have some experience in performing chamber music repertoire and be comfortable with sight reading. Musicians are encouraged to apply as a pre-formed ensemble (trios, quartets, quintets) though some places may be made available to individuals who will be allocated to an appropriate group.

ACMS has a limited number of scholarship places for tertiary music students or recent graduates intending to pursue a career in music. To apply for financial assistance your registration form should be accompanied by a letter addressed to the Adelaide Chamber Music School Committee detailing your career aspirations, reasons for wishing to attend ACMS, your current employment / financial situation in addition to your curriculum vitae and a written reference from an industry professional. The scholarships will cover the registration fees of successful applicants who will only need to fund their accommodation / meals package.
