Professional Chamber Music Programs

Chamber music is at the heart of NEC's approach to musical artistry. Most NEC students participate in chamber music nearly every semester, learning the art of collaboration and collective musical decision-making alongside incredible faculty coaches.

For the advanced ensemble which shows the talent and commitment necessary to pursue a concert career, the Professional String Quartet program, under the direction of Paul Katz, and the Professional Piano Trio program, under the direction of Vivian Hornik Weilerstein, offer top-quality training in all aspects of musicianship and career development. Chamber Music for Pianists is available for individual pianists at the graduate level.
