Classes will be held on Tuesdays from July 5 through Aug. 2 at 10:45 a.m., 11:45 a.m. and 1 p.m., respectively, with tuition of $90, $100 and $115 for the five weeks.

Chamber music is a form of classical music that is performed by a small group of instrumentalists. All ages are welcome. Duos, trios and quartets will be formed and will meet for six sessions to be scheduled at the convenience of participants. Fee is $150.
