Chamber music is a central focus of training at Trinity Laban.
Students receive frequent coaching led by our internationally-acclaimed staff, many of whom perform in the country’s leading ensembles.
We are fortunate that every term our students work with the Carne Trust Ensembles in Residence at Trinity Laban: the Carducci Quartet, the Linos Trio and the Smith Quartet. Regular chamber concerts, masterclasses and coaching days form part of our core provision for Strings, Piano and Wind, Brass & Percussion students, with a wide variety of opportunities for chamber performance collaboration available across the curriculum for Composition, Jazz and Vocal students too.
