The Chrysalis Chamber Music Institute of UNCSA is dedicated to the development of outstanding chamber musicians. Through coachings, rehearsals, seminars, performances, touring, guest mentorship and career development, young artists realize their potentials, emerging fully-formed and ready to flourish.
