Tri-State Ensembles is all about training student musicians to become professionals with the use of chamber ensembles! We want to fast forward the clock for these students, and simulate “real world” professional musician situations. Students are accepted by audition to participate in small ensembles. We rehearse minimally, while still getting to perform mulitiple concerts. We know people are busy, and we make every effort to not be a conflict!
Tri-State Ensembles offers many small ensembles students can be part of, and we continue to grow each year. We continue to add new ensembles and classes yearly to offer something for everyone. Currently, Tri-State Ensembles consists of:
- Trumpet Ensemble
- Advanced Jazz Combo
- Clarinet Choir
- Woodwind Quintet
- Flute Choir
- Pop/Rock Ensemble
- Brass Quintet
- Beginning/Intermediate Music Theory Class
Tri-State Ensembles just LAUNCHED a BRAND NEW program called START UP! that provides group music lessons for beginning musicians.
