Winter Residency

“The Winter Residency allows us to bring the best of our educational resources into the classroom, giving Menlo students the chance to learn from these inspiring musicians.” —Edward Sweeney, Music@Menlo Executive Director

Each winter, Menlo students have the opportunity to experience exceptional chamber music as part of Music@Menlo’s annual Winter Residency Program at Menlo School. The Winter Residency Program brings a select group of the classical music world’s rising stars to campus to engage with Menlo School students for a series of enriching programs.

The artists work directly with many of Menlo School’s esteemed faculty members to create lesson plans that integrate the art and history of classical music with students’ curriculum in subjects ranging from math and history to studio art and music theory. In addition to extensive classroom presentations, past Winter Residency programs have included noontime concerts for Upper School students, Upper School and Middle School assembly performances, and a public benefit concert and reception to raise scholarship funds for Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute.
