Our chamber groups are a vital part of the orchestra’s growth and development, participating in the Encore Series, Eine Kleine Music Lounge, and local/private events around the Lowcountry. Because of the high interest of our musicians to have more performance opportunities apart from the full orchestra, several groups have started up in the past year alone. Some of these groups include:
Jazz Sextet – 2 trumpets, trombone, drums, bass, piano
Flute Choir – 8 flute players from the local Summerville area, including the Summerville Orchestra flutes
Brass Quintet – A quintet made up of 5 brass players in the orchestra – 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, Fr Horn
Woodwind Quintet – Our woodwind principals have recently decided to form a quintet! Flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, Fr Horn
String Quartet – We have two string quartets made up of orchestra members at the moment. Maybe there will be more…
String Trio – A unique instrumentation made up of 2 violins or violas + harp
Oompah Band – This fun group was invited to play this year’s Oktoberfest at Summerville’s Homegrown Brewhouse!
Apart from these groups, we constantly have duets, trios, quartets and more forming for specific events. If you are interested in having one of these groups perform at one of your events, feel free to reach out to email@example.com or conductor, Wojciech (firstname.lastname@example.org), for more information!
