High School Chamber Ensembles:
Each fall a small number of MEF Chamber Ensembles are formed, providing exceptional high school students the opportunity to perform challenging musical literature with their peers. Each ensemble receives ten two-hour rehearsals with an ensemble coach, professional performers/educators from ASU, the Phoenix Symphony, school music programs and private studios. The current ensembles are a Pierrot Ensemble: flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano, and a Brass Quintet: 2 trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba. For more information contact Carol Mellis at cmellis@MusicianEnrichmentFoundation.org.
Instrument Use Program:
MEF has a small amount of band instruments available for use by students who cannot afford the cost of renting or purchasing an instrument. The use fee is $75 for the complete school year and $25.00 is refunded if the instrument is returned in good condition. Please contact Carol Mellis at cmellis@MusicianEnrichmentFoundation.org for further information. Donations of instruments to this program are always appreciated.
