Prelude Performances and Koret Young Performers Concerts

Among the summer festival’s most beloved events, Music@Menlo’s preconcert and afternoon Prelude Performances showcase the exciting young artists of the Chamber Music Institute. Representing a cornerstone of the festival’s educational mission, these concerts offer both veteran concertgoers and new listeners of all ages an unparalleled opportunity to discover great music. San Francisco Classical Voice has hailed the artists of the Chamber Music Institute as “musicians you will want to hear repeatedly in the coming years.”

Prelude Performances are free and open to the public, offering an ideal setting for new listeners and young audiences to discover great music and join in the festival experience. In response to the popularity of these events, a free ticket is required for all Prelude Performances and Koret Young Performers Concerts. Tickets can be requested at will call beginning one hour prior to the start of each concert or reserved online in advance on the day of the event after 9:00 a.m. Learn more about how to reserve your ticket.»
