Program Information

Program scheduling – Unlike the other residency programs of the CMSD, these piano based programs will not be limited to tightly scheduled ensemble residencies, and thus will be available to schools at odd times, or whenever the CMSD determines that there is a need for more programs.  Piano moving logistics will limit these programs to a strict maximum of two buildings per day, with a preference for one building per day. Programs will be scheduled to accommodate up to 150 to 250 students.

Program preparation – The CMSD will provide artist biographies, chamber music glossary, and when possible a recording of program repertoire.

Program follow up and evaluation – Schools will be asked to complete a program evaluation that measures the students’ reactions to program, teacher and administration support and allows for written comments.

Participation fee – $750 half day (up to two sessions), $1,250 full day (three to four sessions).  Limited scholarships to defray program costs are available.  For details, please contact Brian Meter, Education Program Coordinator, (248)985-0065 or Brian.Meter@ChamberMusicDetroit.org.
