Lessons, master classes, coachings, performances, seminars, and competition.


CCMI students each enjoy two private lessons with CCMI faculty. Private lessons focus on solo repertoire. 

 Master Classes 

Students each play in one master class during their time at CCMI. 


Each student at CCMI is part of a chamber music ensemble. Each chamber ensemble receives two regular coachings with CCMI faculty. Pre-formed ensembles are welcome, and applicants who are not part of a pre-formed ensemble will be placed in a chamber group.


CCMI students attend faculty artist recitals, and will perform solo and chamber music recitals in the student recital on July 27. 


CCMI students will engage in seminars led by NPR commentator and violist from the American Chamber Players, Miles Hoffman. Seminar topics will include various themes related to chamber music, careers, performance practice, and questions from the students themselves. 

 Competition and orchestra 

CCMI students are eligible to participate in the CCMI Concerto Competition. The winners of the concerto competition perform with the CCMI orchestra in the final concert on July 28. All string players will play with the CCMI string orchestra, conducted by Maestro Yuriy Bekker, and the string orchestra will hold 1-hour rehearsals throughout the week. 

The CCMI Concerto Competition is open to all CCMI participants. Repertoire must be in the public domain, and is limited to works scored for string orchestra (for example, Baroque concertos, early Mozart, Haydn, etc.).
