2019 Benefit Concert and Reception

Each July, following auditions all over the country, Music@Menlo welcomes an elite cohort of approximately forty talented young musicians to the Menlo School campus for three weeks of rigorous chamber music study and performance. The personal and musical transformation achieved by these musicians during their time at Music@Menlo is made possible by scholarship support awarded through the Ann S. Bowers Young Artist Fund, a fund dedicated to ensuring that talent and potential are the only requisites for participation in the Chamber Music Institute.

On Saturday, February 9, Music@Menlo presents its 2019 Chamber Music Institute Benefit Concert and Reception. This special event offered the opportunity to hear distinguished alumni of the CMI in performance, along with Music@Menlo festival artists cellist Dmitri Atapine and pianist Gloria Chien. The benefit concert also features the announcement of the upcoming Music@Menlo festival theme, and a dessert and wine reception with the artists.
