AYO Chamber Players offers you intensive ensemble training in a creative environment that will both enhance and inspire your development as a chamber musician. You can apply to this program as an individual musician or as an established ensemble. Integrated into the Musica Viva Festival in 2017, you’ll be immersed in an international celebration of chamber music and will have the opportunity to learn from and work with some of the world’s greatest chamber musicians.

Be inspired by artist-in-residence Lambert Orkis, who has achieved international recognition as a chamber musician appearing worldwide with violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter since 1988 and performing recitals with cellist Mstislav Rostropovich for more than eleven years. Joining the program will also be the Elias String Quartet, internationally acclaimed as one of the leading ensembles of their generation, and the brilliant Zuckerman Trio.

The lineup of world-class musicians involved attests to the high standards of the AYO Chamber Player experience. Engaging with these masters of chamber music will take your music-making to a new level of finesse, enriching your musicianship exponentially.
