2022 Academy Chamber Music Program
Saturday, June 25 – Saturday, July 2, 2022
(The Chamber Music Concert is Saturday, July 2 at 7pm)
The Academy Chamber Music Program appeals to a wide range of adult musicians with various chamber music backgrounds, seeking a more intensive experience playing alongside a BSO musician who also coaches the ensemble. For all participants, the Academy Chamber Music Program provides adult musicians with opportunities to develop and advance their chamber music skills. .
The Chamber Music Program offers the following:
- A small ensemble quartet-size or larger with a BSO musician playing and coaching
- Three 1.5-hour rehearsals
- A dress rehearsal in the concert space
- A public performance on the stage of the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall
The 2022 Academy Chamber Music Program is full at this time

The BSO closely monitors federal, state, and local guidelines and will update these policies as needed. In addition to pledging regular communication, we also ask patrons to please check back prior to attending to confirm current protocols.
While the BSO is following recommended practices, these protocols do not offer absolute protection against contracting COVID-19. Those purchasing tickets or attending BSO events voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. In accordance with the BSO’s code of conduct, the BSO reserves the right to require attendees who do not follow our guidelines, or who are disrespectful to staff, artists, volunteers, or other patrons, to leave an event immediately without a refund.
COVID-19 remains a concern for the 2022 Academy, and we will be subject to all state and local requirements. Health and Welfare for everyone is our top priority.
In the event a participant tests positive for COVID-19, and is required to quarantine, all fees and tuition will be reapportioned towards attendance for next year’s Academy program.
