Goucher/Peabody Intercampus Chamber Music Series

Aspiring chamber musicians from Peabody have an exciting opportunity to gain professional concert experience through the newly established Goucher/Peabody Intercampus Chamber Music Series. This collaborative concert series is designed to offer real-world experience to Peabody musicians seeking to perform on professional concert series. This is an excellent opportunity for chamber ensembles to share their talents while connecting and building relationships with community audiences.  

Monthly Sunday concerts take place each Fall and Spring semester on the Forum Stage at Goucher College in Towson, Maryland. Each musician will be compensated $200 per concert, with chamber groups limited to 5 performers per concert.  

Applications are being accepted now for the 2024-2025 concert season.  

Eligibility and Requirements

All performers must be currently enrolled Peabody students during the 2024-2025 academic year. This series is open to all musicians including traditional chamber ensembles and non-traditional ensembles, vocalists, and jazz groups. 

How to Apply

To apply, submit the following materials as a single PDF document in SMILE with links to the following items: 

  1. Program: propose a program of approximately 60 minutes of music. Please describe instrumentation, composers, and timings. Include a narrative of why this program is viable, interesting, and relevant to our audience (college students, nearby retirees, and surrounding Baltimore County community.) 
  2. Bio: no more than 500 words. This should be a representation of the kind of concert experience the performer or group presents, not a resume.
