Director: Nicole Presentey
The Chamber Ensemble offers a wide range of formations from composers spanning the Baroque to Contemporary eras with a focus on rare music: ensembles ranging from duos to octets will feature standard and unusual instrumental and vocal formations.
REHEARSAL TIME/LOCATION: The Chamber Ensemble rehearses online on Thursdays beginning January 21st 2021.
Students will present their work in virtual recitals, at the end of each term.
- Auditions: Monday January 18th, time TBD, via Zoom.
- Auditions will be 15 minutes long. Students should be prepared to play 2 pieces of contrasting styles with a total duration of not more than 10 minutes for both. A short technical and sight reading test may be held after which there will be a brief interview. Students can play to a backtrack if desired.
- Interested students should apply to firstname.lastname@example.org, to arrange an audition.
- Admission to the Carleton University Chamber Ensemble is open to all music students, and to non-music students by permission of the Director, and continuation is determined by enrollment, ability, participation, and attendance. Please note that membership is by audition/appointment only (NB: signing up for the credit does not guarantee a position in the ensemble). If you were in CUCME last year and/or if the Director is familiar with your playing, it is still necessary to contact Nicole Presentey if you are interested in joining for the 2021 season.
