Many of history's greatest composers wrote their most personal and powerful works for chamber ensemble, said Tyler Wottrich, festival artistic director and assistant professor of piano at NDSU. The NDSU Chamber Music Festival, now in its second year, provides an invaluable opportunity for NDSU student pianists to rehearse and perform these works with professional string players, and also brings the Fargo-Moorhead community an intimate encounter with this exhilarating music.

Student pianists are invited to attend open rehearsals and related social events by contacting Tyler Wottrich at tyler.wottrich@ndsu.edu for details.
