Potomac Arts Academy is excited to offer Chamber Music Ensembles (trios and quartets) - open to Potomac students AND outside students! Groups will rehearse weekly at the Academy and receive special coaching/ tutoring from rotating Potomac faculty. Advantages of performing in a chamber music group include:
• Get introduced to amazing chamber repertoire
• Build confidence by carrying your part by yourself
• Find your individual voice and learn to mix with others
• Gain musical "independence" performing sans conductor
• Build close friendships through musical collaboration
Musicians will be placed in an ensemble based on the Coordinator's evaluation process and time slots will be assigned with student schedules in mind. Participants will have the opportunity to perform at least once in the end-of-semester recitals on the GMU campus! CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR STRINGS AND PIANO.

The Honors Percussion Ensemble is open to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students enrolled in the band program at their school. The ensemble will prepare a varied concert program of concert percussion repertoire. Students will improve their skills and rehearsal habits, and increase their awareness of and appreciation for percussion ensemble literature. In addition, students may be introduced to percussion instruments that are not typically used in a band program. Students should demonstrate an intermediate knowledge of concert percussion, including snare, mallet percussion and timpani. A letter of recommendation from the student's band director or private instructor is required to be handed in on the first day. A short audition meeting on the first day will help determine part assignments. Participants will present at least 2 performances each semester.
Teacher: Brian Falatko and Daniel Heagney
