Director of Performance Programs Barbara Schubert spearheads the instrumental ensemble program at UChicago, which includes two orchestras, a symphonic wind ensemble, and a percussion ensemble. Instrumentalists may also participate in the South Asian and Middle East Music Ensembles, in the Jazz X-tet and Jazz Combo, and in small ensembles through the department’s Chamber Music Program. Pianists may receive individual coaching through the Piano Program, led by pianist Svetlana Belsky.
