Before you read on… The DC Chamber Musicians is geared to musicians above the beginner level. While many of our services are geared to musicians in already established, or developing, ensembles, we do offer services that can be very helpful in enabling individual musicians to meet other musicians with whom to form ensembles and to develop their skill levels. Musicians participating in performance options must be at the intermediate level or higher. Read our description of services, benefits and discounts to make sure the fit is right for you. After the description of discounts is a link for you to join the program.
