The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is excited to launch the first-ever Young Musicians Innovation Challenge open to high school students in the tri-state area or the cities of Miami, FL or Philadelphia, PA! This new competition challenges teams of 2-5 high school-age students to launch innovative projects which would benefit the chamber music world. Projects may focus on areas like performance, pedagogy, access, social impact. Proposals are being adjudicated on creativity, viability, sustainability, and ways in which projects address diversity, equity, and inclusion. Teams selected from the Preliminary Round will receive two coaching sessions from Members of the Board and Global Council of CMS in preparation for the Final Round.
Up to 5 teams will be selected at the Final Round to receive a scholarship of $1000 paid to their school or program to implement their proposed project by the end of the 2020-21 school year.
