About SFCM’s String and Piano Chamber Music Department

The String and Piano Chamber Music degree and diploma programs are a year-round focus on chamber music, providing the same atmosphere of a summer festival. Performance opportunities are wide-ranging through workshops, masterclasses, and concerts for the public—all while playing regularly with acclaimed industry professionals and faculty. SFCM created the nation’s first graduate String and Piano Chamber Music program and the musical excellence continues to this day.

The String and Piano Chamber Music program is one of SFCM’s most selective. Intentionally small, the program allows for several talented individuals each year, meaning that students in the program enjoy unrivaled access to learn from and perform with top faculty and accomplished guest artists.

Chamber Music Students will experience high profile performance opportunities through SFCM’s unique Chamber Music Residency Series, giving members of the program the opportunity to intensely and perform closely with exciting and world renowned chamber musicians. Recent artists-in-residence include Marcy Rosen, Tessa Lark, Donald and Vivian Weilerstein, and the Miro Quartet.
