In addition to engaging audiences through innovative, multidisciplinary performances, NCP enjoys working with students at universities and conservatories through short-term residencies. Programs include:
NCP will have a 20- to 30-minute discussion to discuss the work, their creative process, and engage in conversation with the audience.
Members of NCP will listen to 20th century and contemporary chamber music and offer comments and suggestions. Groups of any instrumentation are welcome.
NCP will have an open rehearsal of the ensemble's current repertoire. Repertoire will be chosen by NCP. The rehearsal will be followed by a Q&A.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
NCP Artistic Director Sugar Vendil will give a presentation on the business side of starting and running a chamber music ensemble, including administrative tasks, establishing a nonprofit organization, effective fundraising, and what to expect at the beginning. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
The ensemble will sight-read compositions, which must be submitted to the ensemble at least 2 weeks in advance. Pieces should be short (or excerpts) and use minimal instrumentation, agreed to in advance by the ensemble.
