Chamber Music Institute

2017 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, March 4, Music@Menlo presents its 2017 Chamber Music Institute Benefit Concert and Reception. This special event offers the opportunity to hear distinguished alumni of the CMI in performance, along with Artistic Co-Director, David Finckel, and help raise over $15,000 in critical scholarship support to be awarded to young musicians this summer.

You can make a life-changing investment in these talented young musicians by attending the concert and adding a tax-deductible contribution to the Ann S. Bowers Young Artist Fund. And thanks to a generous $5,000 Challenge from our event sponsor, Jeff Cohn Cellars, all contributions added to ticket orders or made at the concert will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
