If you would like to play in a small ensemble, join a chamber music group.
These are ensembles of at least four musicians coached by an FSPA faculty member and can be made up of like instruments or a mix.
Chamber groups meet once weekly throughout the school year and perform on FSPA recitals and at many important events throughout the greater Flint area as part of the Music on the Move program. Sponsored groups are listed below and are determined each fall by audition. There are also opportunities to form new groups with other musicians!
Call 810.238.1350 ext 3 or EMAIL us to find out more!
