Norwalk Youth Chamber Ensembles (NYCE) is a youth chamber music program focused on string quartet music and improvisation run by professional chamber musician, soloist, composer, and educator, Nick Revel. NYCE's mission is to cultivate creativity, confidence, self-expression, and leadership in students through chamber music and improvisation. The program is a fully independent organization. If you, your student, or your child are a middle/high school-aged violinist, violist, or cellist at Suzuki book 4 (or equivalent), we would love to have you! We’re located at the Warner Center on the St. Paul’s on the Green complex in Norwalk CT. Get directions here. Check out our Facebook Page
