Performance 20/20

Honors Chamber Music Program

What is the Performance 20/20 program?

Performance 20/20, Hartt's Honors Chamber Music Program, is made up of a select group of gifted undergraduate and graduate instrumental performance majors who share a strong commitment to chamber music. Through an intensive schedule of rehearsals and weekly coaching, participants perform on regularly scheduled Performance 20/20 chamber music concerts throughout the year. Performance 20/20 members are offered significant scholarships and the opportunity to study and perform chamber music in a professional atmosphere in addition to their other degree-required courses.

What should I do to prepare for my Hartt Admissions audition so that I am considered for Performance 20/20?

All auditioning instrumental performance applicants will automatically be considered for nomination to Performance 20/20. Students will be notified of their nomination by their auditioning committee. Those who have been nominated and who are interested in participating in this chamber music program will have a second audition for the Performance 20/20 committee following their admissions audition. 

Currently enrolled Hartt students may be nominated by their instrumental teacher for a preliminary in-house audition at any point in a degree program. If a student currently enrolled in Performance 20/20 applies for a different degree at Hartt, the student must re-audition for Performance 20/20.

What IS THE SCHEDULE FOR A MEMBER OF PERFORMANCE 20/20?

Performance 20/20 meets on Mondays and Wednesdays for chamber music rehearsals and coachings with Hartt faculty.  On Thursdays, the ensemble meets for a master class with guest artists such as Charles Neidich, clarinet; Thomas Sauer, piano; Attacca Quartet, and David Jolly, horn.
