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.
