PLEASE NOTE: Due to the health and safety considerations around COVID-19, and the fact that synchronous music-making on the internet is almost impossible to achieve, we have made the difficult decision to suspend this program until it is safe to rehearse and perform again in person. Please see our COVID-19 response page to learn more about how Indian Hill Music is navigating the pandemic by prioritizing the health and safety of our students, families, faculty, and staff.
The information below is provided for informational purposes only while the program is on hold.
Students receive professional-level coaching by our conductor/director, Jason Bielik, and Indian Hill Music faculty musicians.
This ensemble program is generously supported by Claudia Castro and the Faulkner family.
Public performances are offered several times per school year, typically late fall, mid-winter, and spring.
Dates to be announced. Contact the Class & Ensemble Manager to learn more.
