Chamber Music Camp

As part of the NJYS Chamber Camp, young musicians will have an opportunity to refine their artistic skills and collaborate with other young chamber musicians. All participants will be offered daily coaching by the string faculty and a self-guided rehearsal. If you already have a pre-formed quartet or trio and all members meet the eligibility requirements, then NJYS will admit your ensemble to the camp.

Apply online at by June 1, 2024. NJYS will determine if groups can be formed based on the number of enrolled students.

Eligibility: Current 9th – 12th Graders who meet the following requirements:

  • Current (Season 2023-24) NJYS Youth Symphony and Youth Orchestra players (no additional audition required);
  • Current NJYS students who audition for Levels 5 & 6 in May for the upcoming Season 2024-25 (no additional audition required*);
  • Non-NJYS students: must submit a video audition with a solo piece of the student’s choice (minimum NJYS Levels 5 or 6). Please send the unlisted YouTube video by email to by May 1.

*Your audition for the upcoming season will be used to determine your placement into the NJYS Chamber Camp. Audition videos for Camp will have no implications on your placement for the next NJYS season.
