The importance of chamber music is emphasized throughout the instrumental department at Ouachita Baptist University. Each studio maintains small ensembles that perform on campus as well as at various churches, schools, and conferences.
Participation is mandatory for music majors, and strongly encouraged for minors and other scholarship holders. Rehearsal times are decided at the beginning of each semester.
