The results of intensive chamber rehearsal work with various teachers go on regular display in special public concerts given by the scholars. All concert programmes are prepared as a group exercise in the dramaturgy workshops. Scholars also research the appropriate instruments for the works to be performed and compare existing editions. Concert presentation and introduction is also handled by the scholars themselves.
