AMATEUR MUSICIANS PROJECT (AMP)
Chamber Music Coaching
The AMP Chamber Music Coaching program is an opportunity for amateur musicians to play as an ensemble under the guidance of an assigned OSL coach. Participants immerse themselves in chamber music repertoire over a period of 12 weeks, and all ensembles perform in a culminating concert at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music.
The spring 2014 program begins in March and includes eight hours of coaching with an OSL musician. Specific rehearsal schedules and repertoire will be arranged between ensembles and coaches. Ensembles that need more than eight hours to prepare for the concert with a coach will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
The final performance, on June 12, 2014 at 7:30 PM, will run 90 minutes. Each ensemble is given a maximum time limit and may choose to perform one or more pieces in their allotted time.
Private lessons are not included in the program, though they may be arranged separately with OSL coaches.

The AMP Orchestral Intensive, previously scheduled for January 16, 2014, has been postponed until fall 2014. Please check back soon for information about this new program, through which amateur and semi-professional musicians work on orchestral repertoire and perform a concert with members of Orchestra of St. Luke's in a one-evening session.
