Summer Chamber and more
Register early to take advantage of our early bird discount! $165 for one 4-class session, or $300 for both sessions ($30 savings!) Space is limited.
All programing is currently scheduled to take place outdoors in a safe location in the Wharton parking lot in Berkeley Heights. The rehearsal area will have a large canopy and lighting. Groups will be limited in size to maintain social distancing and masks will be required. NJIO will follow up to date state guidelines for Covid-19.
String only groups are available in the traditional chamber program. Please specify all group requests in the comment section of the registration.
We offer two 4 day sessions. Each class is 2 hours in length. Our summer chamber program is open to all ages and all levels. We will help place you in the right group. Each group will have a coach who will provide appropriate level music. Sessions will include instruction and guidance with chamber playing and will end with a casual performance on the forth day. Groups of players who wish to play together in established chamber groups are encouraged to attend.
NJIO is excited to announce an addition to the summer chamber program. Historical Performance is a group that will focus on music of the Baroque time period. Music will be tuned to 415. Period and modern instruments are welcome (including recorders!). Music accommodations can be made for modern instruments to play in the correct pitch. Please contact us with any questions.
