Each day an assignment is given, each group is coached by a professional coach, and performs a 5-minute segment of the work in a program for the other participants. There are mixed instrumentation (strings, woodwinds, piano, horn) ensembles and the music is varied. Visit the Humboldt Chamber Music website.
