Camerata is an ensemble that performs in a mixed instrumental family environment consisting of strings, winds, brass, and percussion. This ensemble introduces aspects of performing larger-scale repertoire consisting of both educational works and also arrangements of larger standard classical works. For most students, this will be their first experience playing in a mixed instrumental setting. Students will be exposed to the different instrument families first hand and will be able to experience the excitement as well as be able to acclimate to the differences of playing in a mixed orchestra.
Camerata strings are generally playing 2 or 3 octave scales (up to 5th position), solos from Suzuki books 3 and 4, and are starting to establish vibrato. Camerata winds are generally comfortable in keys from 4 flats to 2 sharps, know the difference between concert and written pitch, and can play a two-octave chromatic scale. Camerata brass are also generally comfortable in keys from 4 flats to 2 sharps, know the difference between concert and written pitch, and are developing their two-octave chromatic scale.
• Camerata performs 2-3 concerts per season.
