Are there opportunities to play chamber music?

Yes! Chamber music is a huge part of HRO – many HRO members are enrolled in Music 189r, a credit-bearing course designed to give HRO members an opportunity to play and perform chamber music. Chamber groups receive an hour-long coaching every week from members of the Parker Quartet and also rehearse separately on their own, all in preparation for the performance of a work in its entirety at the end of the semester. Students may form their own groups and select their own repertoire or be assigned a group by the coaches. All are welcome to participate – your audition for HRO will count as your audition for the course, so it's very easy to get involved! And beyond Music 189r, plenty of HRO members are ready and willing to sight-read chamber music at any time, just for the fun of it.
