Music@Menlo unites the next generation of great chamber musicians with a renowned faculty of today’s most esteemed artists and educators. Join the young artists and faculty of the Chamber Music Institute during the festival as they exchange ideas, discuss interpretive approaches, and prepare masterworks of the classical music literature for the stage. The Institute’s master classes and other select Institute activities offer visitors the rare opportunity to witness the special exchange between artist and apprentice, an artistic tradition revered for generations. Institute coachings and master classes culminate in the festival’s series of Prelude Performances and Koret Young Performers Concerts. Each weekday of the festival features either a master class with the Chamber Music Institute’s young artists or a Café Conversation. Master classes and Café Conversations are offered at 11:45 a.m. on the campus of Menlo School. Master classes and Café Conversations are free and open to the public. Seating is by general admission; tickets or reservations are not available for these events. Programs are subject to change.
