History of the C.W. Post Chamber Music Festival
The C.W. Post Chamber Music Festival was founded in 1982 by Susan Deaver, flutist, and
Maureen Hynes, cellist, who are both performing members of the Pierrot Consort, the faculty ensemble-in-residence at the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University. This intensive three-week festival, unique on Long Island, focuses on the study and performance of the standard chamber music repertoire. Participants are coached by members of The Pierrot Consort, Festival Artists and Guest Artists. The Festival includes a weekly schedule of chamber ensembles, chamber orchestras, master classes, chamber music performance classes, educational residencies, musicianship classes, concerto and ensemble competitions and a conducting program. During the Festival, a series of concerts are presented by the Pierrot Consort with Guest Artists. During the final week of the Festival, a series of chamber and orchestral concerts are presented by Festival Participants. Concerts traditionally are held in Hillwood Recital Hall and Tilles Center for the Performing Arts.
Over 100 participants are selected through auditions each spring for openings in piano, voice and
all orchestral instruments. In addition, a limited number of conductors are chosen for the Festival’s Conducting Program. From the very beginning, the Festival has attracted young musicians from some of the country’s finest conservatories, such as Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, Mannes, Curtis, Eastman School of Music, Peabody, the New England Conservatory, and music schools and conservatories from abroad. In addition to students from Long Island and New York State colleges and universities, the Festival has in recent years accepted talented younger students, some of whom have already won competitions. Music educators from Long Island also attend the Festival to enhance both their teaching and performance abilities.
The Festival offers schedules in which undergraduate and graduate credits can be earned. High
school students may earn college credit through the High School Enrichment Program. The Festival is also offered as a non-credit tuition based program. Full time and part time schedules are available. Scholarships, Fellowships and Academic Assistantships are available.

chamber music ensembles meet for coaching from 2 to 5 p.m. each afternoon (Monday through Friday).

Undergraduate and High School Enrichment Program students can earn 3 credits with a specially
designed program of study.
Artistry Program for young professionals and preformed chamber ensembles
The Festival’s emphasis on young professionals and preformed chamber ensembles is to present an
opportunity to showcase existing talent and to further their careers. There are opportunities during the
Festival for performance at pre-concert recitals and/or on the Festival’s Mini-Performances. Artistry
Program participants will also have the opportunity to interact with The Pierrot Consort, Festival Artists
and special guest artists. Past guest artists have included Lawrence Dutton, violist of the Emerson String

will be opportunities to participate in educational residencies with members of The Chamber Music
Society of Lincoln Center and members of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Fellowships are available.
Performance Program for college & conservatory musicians
The Festival’s focus on college and conservatory-level students is to further develop their chamber
music experience. Advanced chamber music repertoire in past seasons has included such challenging
works such as Brahms and Schumann piano quartets; Shostakovich, Ravel and Bartok string quartets;
Nielsen and Barber woodwind quintets, the Stravinsky Octet and the Poulenc Sextet for piano and
winds. Chamber ensembles meet daily for coachings with individual Festival Artists and members of
The Pierrot Consort. Each participant’s schedule also includes morning chamber orchestra rehearsals
and master classes. Fellowships and scholarships are available. Music Educators Program for the Advancement of Chamber Music
The Festival’s commitment to chamber music is the focus of this new program on the “Advancement of
Chamber Music.” This program will assist music educators who are interested in developing chamber
music programs at their schools, or who are interested in further developing existing programs for their
students. Music educators will find this program to be infomative and inspiring. Music educators
accepted into the Festival may earn up to three credits, or if offered, two in-service credits. Schedules
are tailored to each music educator’s interest and educational needs, and often schedules incorporate a
mixture of chamber music and master classes of interest. Course work can be scheduled to cover one to
threeweeks of the Festival. Advanced Program for students ages 15 to 18
The musically advanced high school student’s schedule includes morning chamber orchestra rehearsals
and master classes. Each afternoon the schedule from 2 to 5 p.m. focuses on chamber music. With a full-
time schedule, a student will be scheduled in four different chamber ensembles that meet for daily
coachings with faculty members. Seminar Program for students ages 9 to 14

experience in chamber ensemble and chamber orchestra playing. Seminar students participate in the
Seminar Chamber Orchestra and various chamber ensembles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday

orchestral repertoire, and aspects of conducting. Conducting participants attend master classes, receive
training with the Conductors’ Ensemble and actively observe rehearsals of the Festival Chamber
Orchestra. Selected advanced conducting students will work with the Conductors’ Ensemble in coached
rehearsals and may conduct performances. Exceptional conductors may be offered the opportunity to

presence and decorum. Classes are on Friday afternoons during the first two weeks of the Festival from
2 to 5 p.m.
