Stravinsky Duo's music video
Here's why you or your friends should join JCM!
Eighty-five young musicians appeared before three professional performing artists last weekend during the 12th annual Junior Chamber Music auditions. One by one they played two pieces of music to demonstrate their skill range and to help the adjudicators find a spot for them in the elite music training program.
“I remember when I walked in (for my first audition), I was extremely nervous,” said Amber Correa, 14, who auditioned five years ago. “I expected to see stone cold faces, but instead there was nothing but smiling faces, and I knew these people were going to be supportive no matter how I played.”
This year, our Debut Artists were given the incredible opportunity to create their own music videos.

From Jeff Marsh regarding the film recording session: Yesterday was an amazing day. The musicians exceeded my expectations. I prepared 11 pieces expecting to record maybe 8, but we recorded all 11 pieces and we made an additional cue out of a section of 1m3. So we really got 12 pieces and did not go into overtime. Plus, we took generous breaks. No doubt you are as proud of your kids as I am. Thank you for bringing them and allowing me to share this experience with them.
