A Unique Musical Experience

The Chamber Music by the River program offers a unique experience for amateur musicians to rehearse, perform and learn in an unforgettable musical experience. CMR is a program where musicians can study their craft, perform publicly, and enjoy fellowship while enjoying the beautiful backdrop of the Connecticut River. In a nurturing and supportive environment, this program offers the opportunity to play in small ensembles (quintets or smaller) and a larger ensemble (decet or larger.)

As conductor and chamber ensemble coach, I enjoy creating a collaborative music fabric, woven from musicians each at different places in their musical journeys. I strive to challenge all musicians to perform at their highest potential, and together, perform some of the best chamber ensemble literature.

In coaching and conducting, I aspire for the musician to:

  • Have a greater knowledge of musical styles as they differ between composer, musical era, and culture
  • Contribute effective musical criticism of him/herself and the ensemble during the rehearsal process
  • Have a greater knowledge of the role of his/her individual part, whether a solo, counterpoint, or accompanimental, therefore contributing positively to the balance of the ensemble
  • Improve his/her intonation, technique, tone, musical expression, and rhythm while working together to create a cohesive, musical ensemble
  • Learn positive performance techniques and avoid the traps of performance anxiety while performing publicly.
  • Play musically.
  • Above all, enhance his/her joy of playing chamber music
