The NOVA Music Project

NOVA Chamber Music Series' music education program, the NOVA Music Project, furthers the art of chamber music by demonstrating to local public school students the foundations of collaborative music-making and musical teamwork evident in harmony, rhythm, dynamics and counterpoint.



That the classical music audiences of tomorrow will experience how chamber music can enrich their life today.

Chamber music involves making music in small, focused groups, where each instrument plays an integral role in a team. The ultimate goal is to perform as a single unified entity, and chamber music groups rehearse long hours in order to play exactly in sync with one another.

Chamber music is a valuable tool to engage students' ability to listen, interact, and learn the art of teamwork.
