Chamber music ensembles are a focus during the winter months at GRC. Our students are organized into both traditional and non-traditional chamber music ensembles. Encouragement is given for each ensemble to work individually and as a collective with their group to prepare and perform music for the District 7 Solo and Ensemble Festival, held each February, or for other events at GRC.
Ensembles receiving a distinguished rating at the highest level of performance literature are eligible to participate in the State Solo and Ensemble Festival during May.
Guest ensembles are also invited to provide exposure to the art form. Previous guests have included:
- Stiletto Brass Quintet
- EKU Faculty Woodwind Quintet
- Morehead State Clarinet Choir
- UK, Morehead, and EKU Percussion Faculty
