The PIMF Chamber Music Program sessions are two hours daily, and include coachings, chamber music master classes, and performance preparation with attention to bowings, articulation, musicianship, and specialized intonation concepts. Students at all levels can elect chamber music and will be assigned chamber music partners based on level of proficiency, age, and other logistic factors. Student musicians enrolled in the PIMF Chamber Music Program elective will be sent music prior to the start of the Festival. Complete works will often be performed, featuring one movement per group. Performances for those enrolled in the PIMF Chamber Music Program for one week will take place at the conclusion of their respective week.
