Junior Trinity students have opportunities to experience chamber music playing at various levels. This is often their introduction to the genre as chamber music coaching is often not available to them elsewhere.
Various aspects of the repertoire are explored from string quartets/octets to wind quintets to smaller duo and trio groupings. The saxophone quartet, saxophone ensemble and baroque ensemble are also popular.
Pianists who can have fewer opportunities to perform chamber music, often participate in the multi-hand groups, exploring unusual repertoire or join one of our Piano Performance Classes.
Jazz ensembles can be available for students wishing to delve into jazz repertoire and improvisation techniques in more depth alongside the larger traditional Big Band.
Students are encouraged to perform chamber music in the JT at Tea Time concerts and in public concerts. Many ensembles perform regularly in high-profile events.
