utsc/oba small ensemble festival

new combined festival!!!


The 11th Anniversary Small Ensemble Festival (formerly known as the Chamber Music Festival) is a festival experience for small ensembles of all genres such as string quartets, blue grass bands, mixed instrumental duos and trios, rock and indie bands or recorder ensembles.


The Small Ensemble Festival Experience


Your festival music making experience includes:


  • Thoughtful guidance, suggestions, and feedback offered by our adjudication team. 

  • One-on-one clinics following each performance. 

  • Learning from and supporting other groups during the festival.

  • Witnessing the experience of other small ensembles during their performances and adjudications. 

  • Music making in a supportive and nurturing environment.

  • Making connections with other musical groups and musicians from your community. 


On behalf of my team and myself, we look forward to seeing you at the festival in April.
