Exceptional Performance

& Education Combined

The collaborative environment of chamber music fosters incredible growth, musically and personally. In addition to producing live chamber music events through our 9th Street Quartet concert series, 9SCM is proudly invested in engaging committed young musicians through our String Quartet Intensive program. We cultivate a collegial environment between our coaches and musicians that encourages personal responsibility and a sense of independence that separates the experience from that of a more traditional youth music enrichment program. String Quartet Intensive members also engage with the community in various outreach performances throughout their season.
