Chamber Music Academy

Merit-Based Scholarship Chamber Music Program for High School Students

The Fischoff National Chamber Music Association is committed to inspiring the next generation of chamber musicians through our annaual Fischoff Competition and community out reach programs. Established in 1999, the Fischoff Chamber Music Academy, formerly known as the Fischoff Mentoring Project, is helping to create a chamber music community among local area high school musicians who are dedicated to digging deeper into the challenging repertoire of chamber music.

Each year, string, piano, woodwind, brass, and mixed ensembles of three to six musicians in Northern Indiana and Southwestern Michigan are selected to participate. This program provides merit-based scholarship covering 100% of the tuition costs thanks to the generous support of community organizations and donors.
