The Nicholls Camerata is a chamber ensemble comprised of members of the string program at Nicholls, an intensive program of instruction started by James Alexander in 2007.  Currently attracting students from all over the world, the Nicholls Camerata performs without conductor and its repertoire ranges from Baroque to Modern.
