What is the North Carolina Chamber Music Institute?

The North Carolina Chamber Music Institute (NCCMI) is an exciting program to give Triangle area music students the opportunity to enrich their playing and learning experiences through small group ensembles with professional music coaches and through public performance.

This program allows students to learn musical leadership and communication skills in a small group, and opens up repertoire only available to small chamber groups like string, wind and piano quartets.

Participants in the program learn to play as a team in professionally coached small group ensembles. This helps children to achieve a well-rounded musical education beyond solo and orchestral playing.

How do I participate?

NCCMI is open to music students from early advanced players through advanced players, typically ranging in age from 8 to 18. Students accepted into the program will be placed in chamber groups with other students at their playing level.

Auditions are held each  June, July  and August and are required for acceptance. You can submit an application through our online form via our web site at www.nccmi.org.

We operate on an September to April program, which will include 16 coaching sessions, 16 student-led rehearsals, recitals, outreach, performance review, master classes and workshops.

NCCMI is an equal opportunity not-for-profit corporation and encourages applications from all demographic groups. Some financial aid is available.

Auditions are by appointment only and are in June (Early Bird) and again in July and August (for regular applicants).
