On Saturday, March 17, 2018, Music@Menlo presented its 2018 Chamber Music Institute (CMI) Benefit Concert and Reception. This special event offered the opportunity to hear distinguished alumni of the CMI in performance, along with Artistic Co-Director, David Finckel, and helped to raise critical scholarship support to be awarded to young musicians this summer. Additionally, each year the benefit concert features the announcement of the upcoming Music@Menlo festival theme, and a dessert and wine reception with the artists.
Each summer, Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute welcomes forty young musicians to participate in two elite programs, the International Program for conservatory-level and young professional musicians and the Young Performers Program serving pre-professional artists ages nine to eighteen. Institute participants receive coachings
from artist-faculty over the course of three weeks, culminating in Prelude Performances and Koret Young Performers Concerts. Festival audiences can share in these unique educational experiences through master classes, Café Conversations, and open coaching sessions.
The virtuosic young artists who participate in the Chamber Music Institute each year represent the future of chamber music. The participation of these artists is made possible by the generous supporters of the Ann S. Bowers Young Artist Fund. Each participant in the International Program receives a full fellowship, and all Young Performers who apply for financial aid receive partial or full assistance. The transformative educational experience they receive at Music@Menlo would not be possible without this support. Please assist these generous individuals today with a gift to the Ann S. Bowers Young Artist Fund.
