Prelude Chamber Music, Inc., is a charitable organization of seasoned professional symphony and chamber musicians who instruct at a summer camp for talented youth and adults in Northeast Florida and offer local performance experiences and mentoring programs in our communities throughout the year. Our founders and instructors are often members of the Jacksonville Symphony or are in other similar music professions who want to give back to the community and share the love of fine music making. We teach students of all ages how to be better musicians, stressing performance skills such as musical interpretation, individual discipline and teamwork.
Our mission is to cultivate new opportunities for music education in Northeast Florida and offer enriching programs that allow students to share in the special joy of small ensembles and gain access to qualified consultants and community venues.
We give musicians at every ability level an opportunity to experience chamber music in a positive and non-competitive way, and to enjoy chamber music now as students, and throughout their lives. We encourage our students to be life-long learners and to pursue their passions for music with community involvement.
