Chamber Music Institute

Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute offers a rich, immersive experience for the most committed and artistically driven young musicians seeking the opportunity to take their art to the highest level.

Regarded among the world’s leading chamber music festivals for its innovative programming and artistic excellence, Music@Menlo offers string players and pianists ages ten to thirty a unique opportunity to fully engage in performances, lectures, master classes, and other educational events intended to nurture the artistry of the next generation’s most promising young musicians. Excitement, passion, and the spirit of curiosity are defining characteristics of our participants. Students are immersed in a musical atmosphere like no other, where the entire festival community is engaged in learning about the chamber music art form.

“The Institute really does feel like at least a year’s worth of learning condensed into three weeks, which is at times overwhelming but also incredibly powerful and poignant. The experience will stay with me for the rest of my life.”
