Founded in 2018, Hilton Head Chamber Music Institute (HHCMI) provides an intensive training program focused on the art of chamber music. Designed for outstanding young musicians from across the United States who possess a strong focus on chamber music performance, the program is led by world-renowned violinist and cellist, Carolyn Huebl and Felix Wang, professors at the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University.

The highly individualized program encompasses coaching, masterclasses, one-on-one instruction, special workshops, and professional performance experiences at SoundWaves, the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra’s new, state-of-the-art island headquarters.

Surrounded by the serene beauty of the island, our mission is to offer a congenial and rigorous environment that fosters student-faculty collaboration, musical study, and inquiry. HHCMI will have a special focus on preparing students to be lifelong musicians who balance the highest level of performance with the enjoyment of life.
