Adult Chamber Music Program at the Mason Gross School of the Arts in New Brunswick, NJ includes Classical Guitar!!

September 16th, 2016 by bob 1 comment »

Guitarists- Now’s the time to join The Adult Chamber Program at Mason Gross School for the Arts. Last year, two classical guitarists participated with 2 flutists to form a quartet that worked beautifully. This year we hope to have more guitarists join. Join alone and look for a group with other participants–or join with your guitar or other musician friends (any instruments or vocalists) and form your own trio, quartet or more to be coached.

Leighann Narum–one of Mason Gross’s Extension Division College faculty members, https://mgedacmp.wordpress.com/faculty/
will again be coaching ensembles with guitarists and she really looks forward to having members of the NJ Guitar Society and their friends join ! 

Semester begins: Sunday, October 16, 2016Sunday, April 30, 2017
for 12 two-hour coaching sessions (monthly or bi-monthly) as well as
performance forums where ensembles have the opportunity to perform for one another.For more information go to : https://mgedacmp.wordpress.com/
