2023 – Winter Workshops

  • March is the new February….due to the loss of our beloved venue, IHM, we have had to move the “February” Workshop to March for 2023. We are excited to announce the winter workshop will be held March 17-20 at the Glorieta conference facilities just outside of Santa Fe. Much more information to come—including registration—as we finalize all the details. Admittedly, this link makes it look like camp facilities and kids, but rest assured, we will have an entire building with many break-out spaces, including a large performance space, all to ourselves with on-site catering. And just across the street in easy walking distance, Marriott-style hotel accommodation. Please hold your calendars for March 17-20, 2023. Can’t wait to see you all again!
  • In addition to our usual winter programming, we are also excited to announce the Chamber Orchestra, led by Roger Coull joining us again from the UK, will be premiering a work Kammermusik Workshops commissioned in honor of our 25th year: Sinfonietta No. 3, by Colin Touchin. Here’s a link to several of his other compositions.

Previous Updates

01/24/2021 – Our friends at ACMP have recently released a new assessment of the practicality of playing online in real time. Please check our tips for online playing and lessons for more!

With the current pandemic, Kammermusik Workshops has been obliged to cancel workshops for the time being, in common with most other organisations. We miss you all terribly and remain hopeful of running a Summer Workshop in 2021, in either Oxford or Santa Fe. Of course, this all depends on the extent to which the pandemic is controlled and ultimately on whether a vaccine can be found and delivered. We are reviewing the position every month, and will make our best efforts to restart the workshops when it appears safe to do so, understanding that national and international travel may be limited for some time and that some people may have additional advisory restrictions due to their age or state of health.

New Program — Online Teaching!

In the meantime, we are starting a new program of individual online lessons, in which we facilitate contact between our community of participants and our amazing group of coaches from the USA and the UK. And distance is no object for this activity! We hope that this will be musically useful to our community, will help to maintain the connections between players and coaches during the various lockdowns and, not least, will provide income for the coaches, who have seen much of their regular work and income disappear because of the pandemic.

The program is now up and running, accessible here! And coaches are still available!

We welcome your questions!  You can reach us via email here (

What is Kammermusik Workshops?

Kammermusik Workshops is a Santa Fe, NM, based not-for-profit organization in our 25th year of providing chamber music workshops for adult amateur musicians.

Our mission is to provide workshops that inspire artistic and personal growth supported by the highest quality professional coaches.

Instrumentation: woodwinds (including French Horns), strings and keyboards

Characteristics of our workshops: friendly, supportive, non-competitive, no stress, no auditions

Who comes to Kammermusik Workshops: 30 – 65 players from all over the USA and abroad, all enthusiasts, but who have other lives, too … nurses, physicians, physicists, computer specialists, lawyers, accountants, engineers, teachers, retired. The standards range from good amateur to professionals who want to broaden their chamber music experience. Here‘s what some of them have had to say over the years!

We provide a top-notch player experience at a very fair price, all in a relaxed, supportive environment, guided by quality professionals. Come join us and experience the beauty of the music! Financial assistance, in the form of workshop scholarships, is available.

Many of our workshops have been made possible through generous support of ACMP – The Chamber Music Network, and the Clinton B. Ford Fund of its ACMP Foundation, an organization that promotes chamber music activities for amateur musicians.
