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 2020 we are seeking applications from string players, wind players and pianists in pre-formed ensembles. There is no specific minimum standard of proficiency but participants should have 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 individual applicants who will be allocated to an appropriate group.
