Vivace! Chamber Players inspires, develops skills,
and builds friendships that last a lifetime.
WELCOME TO VIVACE! Opening its doors in 2004, Vivace! began, simply, with a focus in chamber music serving 48 students. Designed to create a rich chamber music experience, Vivace! quickly earned its name by growing in a remarkably vivacious manner, not only in numbers, but in the level of musicianship and skill of our participants, and this, in turn, allowed for the expansion of Vivace's musical offerings. Today, Vivace! serves 180 students in 37 chamber ensembles, choir, symphonic orchestra, string orchestra, and ensembles for winds, brass, cello, flute, guitar, and piano. Full of fun surprises, creative programming, and beautiful playing, our chamber recitals and final concerts never cease to amaze! Located on the beautiful campus of University Prep in the Wedgwood neighborhood of Seattle, students of all ages and levels enjoy the opportunity to meet other musicians, receive professional coaching, and experience music in a variety of settings. We were unable to secure a venue for camp this summer, but will be back in 2020!
Vivace is a five and seven-day camp, located at University Prep in Seattle. A non-refundable deposit of $150 is due with registration. Final tuition payment is due May 1. Enrollment starts filling up as early as February, so register early to ensure the best possible placement!
Cancellations: One half refundable prior to May 1. After May 1, cancellations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Our coaches are passionate, deep-experienced, and well-qualified, and they believe in the power of chamber music to transform lives.
Students are divided by age into two groups: Level A, kids ages 5–12 and Level B, young adults ages 12 through college-aged. Both require suggested two years minimum private instruction, and an in-person audition is preferred for new campers. For complete information on both programs, please click below.
