Chamber Music Registration

Students should NEVER register or add/drop chamber music or piano ensemble on SIS.  All registrations and add/drops must be done through the Director of Chamber Music, Michael Kannen (mkannen1@jh.edu).

Chamber Music sign-up for the Fall semester happens at the very beginning of the semester.  Sign-up for Spring semester chamber music happens at the end of the Fall semester.

In both cases, look for emails from me (Michael Kannen)!  These will have all the information you need and links to the sign-up forms.

Detailed Information about chamber music requirements, procedures and sign-up can be found by navigating to “Requirements” on the Chamber Music page.

Fall 2022 Chamber Music Sign-Up (for all instruments except piano– piano see below):

Welcome to Chamber Music at Peabody, 2021-2022!!!

You can find lots of information about the chamber music program at the Chamber Music page of the Peabody website:  http://www.peabody.jhu.edu/conservatory/chambermusic/

Here is some information about chamber music that will help get you started this year…

DO NOT REGISTER FOR CHAMBER MUSIC OR PIANO ENSEMBLE ON SIS.  YOU MUST SIGN-UP THROUGH ME AND WE WILL GET YOU PROPERLY REGISTERED!

Signing-Up for Chamber Music:

All sign-up forms are online.  LINKS TO CHAMBER MUSIC SIGN-UP FORMS WILL COME TO YOU IN EMAILS FROM MICHAEL KANNEN.

As always, you can sign up for chamber music in one of two ways:

1. If you have formed a group, fill out a Pre-Formed Group Form. (If you have formed most of a group and would like me to help you find players to complete the group, fill out a Pre-Formed Group Form and indicate what you need in the appropriate place.)

  1. If you do not have a pre-formed group, but would like to participate in chamber music, fill out an Individual Sign-Up Form.  

LINKS TO CHAMBER MUSIC SIGN-UP FORMS WILL COME TO YOU IN EMAILS FROM MICHAEL KANNEN.

If you would like to play in more than one group, you MUST get permission from me first!  (We do not allow freshman to play in more than one group.)

Chamber Music sign-up for pianists:

AUDITION:  

For All Pianists Who Want to Play Chamber Music or Piano Ensemble This Year and Do Not Have a Pre-Formed Group: 

If you are pianist and would like to be placed in chamber music (including piano ensemble) in Fall or Spring this year, you must play a short audition on Wednesday, September 1st.  

An electronic sign-up sheet will be sent by email from Michael Kannen.

Please prepare two contrasting movements from your solo repertoire (works from the Classical period are encouraged!) and you will be asked to sight read a short, not-too-hard piece, as well. 

 When assigning groups, I have to give priority to pianists who play an audition.  You have a better chance of getting a group if you play!  There is no spring semester audition!

If you would like to play in more than one group, you MUST get permission from me first!  (We do not allow freshman to play in more than one group.)

Signing-Up for Chamber Music or Piano Duo:

LINKS TO CHAMBER MUSIC SIGN-UP FORMS WILL COME TO YOU IN EMAILS FROM MICHAEL KANNEN.
