In addition, Settlement Music School operates its Adult Chamber Players Program at three branches in the Philadelphia area: the Mary Louise Curtis branch in South Philadelphia, the Wynnefield branch in Fairmount Park, and the Willow Grove branch north of the city. Biweekly sessions meet from September to June each year, with rotating groupings and ensembles drawing on the Settlement music library. Intermediate and advanced players of any age are encouraged to contact coordinator Mary Felley at email@example.com for more information.
An Adult Orchestra also meets biweekly at the Willow Grove branch to work on classical orchestral repertory in a collegial atmosphere. Chamber music coaching by Settlement faculty is also available during the school year.
