Education and outreach have been an integral part of the Melbourne Chamber Music Society since our inception. Each year we strive to have one or more of the ensembles or individuals appearing in our international concert series provide a clinic or masterclass for a local school or organization like the Brevard Symphony Youth Orchestra.
Some of the highlights include a 2012 masterclass with world renowned violinist, Midori, a 2013 masterclass with trumpet virtuoso Alison Balsom (one of only two she gave on her entire U.S. tour!) and a 2018 clinic for West Shore Jr./Sr. High School orchestra students by violinist Sirena Huang, winner of the inaugural Elmar Oliveira International Violin Competition.
Most recently the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio gave a workshop for the music students at Eau Gallie High School. The trio performed for the students, spoke about their backgrounds and took questions from the very attentive audience.
Some other top level ensembles providing outreach events in the past include: American Chamber Players, Spanish Brass, Carducci String Quartet, Kuss String Quartet, Vienna Piano Trio, Borealis Woodwind Quintet and the American Brass Quintet.
