Southwest Chamber Music has provided opportunities for a limited number of student internship positions each year. Interns must possess excellent computer skills, a strong interest and enthusiasm for classical music, self-transportation, and the ability to work flexible hours, including occasional evenings and weekends.
Unfortunately, no internship positions are available at this time.
Master Classes are available for groups of college music students by members of Grammy-winning Southwest Chamber Music on string, woodwind, percussion, and brass instruments, as well as voice and piano. Many of our musicians are noted teachers in the area, serving on the faculty at UCLA, Azusa University, Chapman University, Cal State University campuses, Pasadena Conservatory, USC and others.
Master Classes are designed for a class of students on one instrument, or one family of instruments. Students selected by their instructor perform individually for the musician in front of the other students, and receive a short public lesson. The session lasts from 1-3 hours and the length depends on the number of participating students.
Join us before many of our concerts for a short informative talk with featured musicians and composers, led by Grammy Award-winning Artistic Director Jeff von der Schmidt. These talks are a perfect way to learn about each concert’s interesting perspective, which enhances your concert experience.
Also available before each concert are Podcasts and advance Program Notes by Jeff von der Schmidt.
