The chamber music program at SU provides the opportunity to study significant works for small instrumentation, receiving academic credit and coaching from our outstanding faculty. At the recommendation of the private teacher, students are nominated for these unique experiences.
Pianists, wind players, brass players and string players have collaborated on significant works such as the Schumann Piano Quintet, the Brahms Piano Quintet, Dvorak Piano Quintet, Smetana Trio, Beethoven String Quartet Op. 59 No. 3, Mozart Flute Quartet, the Poulenc Sextet, and Schubert’s “Auf dem Strom” (for tenor, horn, and piano).
As part of Susquehanna’s GO program, SU students may study chamber music through our unique “A Window to Japan- Western Concert Music through the Eyes of Japan” program, facilitated by piano professor Naomi Niskala, D.M.A.
Our chamber groups perform on and off campus in a variety of venues and festivals. A student coordinator helps facilitate off campus events such as weddings, dinner music, and receptions. Contact Amanda Simensky for more information.
