CMS presents a high-spirited concert featuring eleven extraordinarily talented ensembles from Greater New York area high schools, Thursday, April 23, at 11:00 AM in Alice Tully Hall. Selected by audition, the winning ensembles boast accomplished young musicians who are rigorously coached in challenging repertoire by renowned members of CMS. Over 150 students apply for participation from over 15 local schools. Up to 50 student musicians are selected in the competition and students, teachers, and family members attend the culminating concert. This unparalleled opportunity to perform not only at Lincoln Center, but in one of the world’s greatest venues for chamber music, is a dream come true for these students. CMS favorite Bruce Adolphe, providing commentary and lots of laughs, will host. Musical selections include works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Hindemith, Rossini, and more.
The CMS Young Musicians program promotes the inclusion of chamber music instruction in the high school programs of local schools, with the goal of encouraging young musicians to become life-long participants in the art of chamber music, whether professional or personal.
CMS is extending the chance to hear this always inspiring and musically rewarding event to the general public. The concert is free, but reservations are required. Call 212.875.5788.
