Chamber Music Institute

VAM Chamber Music Institute (CMI) aims to inspire and challenge the Lower Mainland’s most aspiring musicians by offering an intensive study of the seminal works that encompass the chamber music repertoire.  CMI was created and designed by one of Canada’s most esteemed musicians, Professor Andrew Dawes, who will serve as CMI Director.  CMI will specialize in repertoire involving strings, piano and winds with an emphasis on string quartets.  Participation in CMI is based on audition, and is open to all students regardless of whether they are registered at VAM or not.  Weekly seminars will take place on Sundays, 2:00pm-5:00pm and will incorporate coachings by CMI faculty, independent rehearsals, and chamber music master classes.
