A stage for you at Lincoln Center. From creating your recital program to planning your schedule and making arrangements with colleague-collaborators, your recital puts you in charge. It is the culmination of the work you have accomplished in the studio with your teacher and the chance for you to express your musical voice.
Our highly structured chamber music program encourages collaborative growth and musical exploration with your colleagues. Under the sure guidance of the HP faculty during twice-weekly coachings, students experience a broad survey of national styles and regular performance opportunities throughout the year—including through our Tuesdays at Twelve concert series in the acoustically ideal nave of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. The chamber music program celebrates musical excellence and student collaboration.
Vocal Arts Collaborations
Although HP only accepts instrumental majors, a rich survey of vocal music is an integral part of our program. In addition to classes in Early Music Vocal Literature, our students collaborate with singers on a regular basis: in recitals, chamber music, and, most notably, in the performances of fully staged Baroque operas and large-scale oratorios that are part of our concert offerings every year.
