IAYO National Chamber Music Workshops | 19 – 20 November 2022

We will hold our annual National Chamber Music Workshop on Saturday, 19 and Sunday, 20 November at Newtown School, Waterford.

Under the direction of Katharina Baker, this weekend course is suitable for strings, woodwind and brass players from grades 2 – 5 (or equivalent standard). Applicants can apply as a pre-formed quartet or ensemble or as an individual player. More senior players are welcome to apply as part of pre-formed ensembles.

Apply here.

Closing date for applications will be Thursday, 20 October 2022.

Experience of chamber ensemble playing is not needed but players should be able to read music.

There will be residential (€100) and non-residential (€80) places available with accommodation provided in Newtown School.

IAYO has been a long-time advocate of the benefits of chamber music and has run a chamber music weekend course for over twenty years.

We support chamber music playing because:

  • Chamber music increases players’ standard and ability to play their instrument in ensembles;
  • It increases their independence and commitment to their playing;
  • It helps their teamwork and social skills both in music and in general;
  • They have lots of fun and make new friends!
