Maestro Chamber Music Society Concert Series
Maestro’s Twenty-Ninth Season presents concerts featuring soprano Lisette Oropesa with pianist Vlad Iftinca; Dover Quartet; violinist Bomsori Kim and pianist Drew Petersen; pianist Elisso Virsaladze; cellist John Walz with pianist Edith Orloff; and pianist Orion Weiss. Thanks to a generous contribution from the Jerry and Margaretta Hausman Charitable Trust, Maestro will launch a new concert event this season. Quartetto di Cremona will appear in the Hausman Family Foundation Inaugural Concert. The soloist for the 18th Annual Robert E. Turner Piano Recital is Behzod Abduraimov.
Friends from Camerata Pacifica violist Richard O’Neill, violinist Paul Huang and cellist Ani Aznavoorian will appear in this season’s Founders’ Celebration. The evening includes a private concert followed by dinner with the artists. Join us for this special event celebrating the generosity of members contributing at the Founders’ level and above.
Instrument Lending Program
The concert series raises visibility and funds for Maestro’s primary philanthropic objective. Since 2001, the Instrument Lending Program has put high quality instruments in the hands of gifted student musicians that otherwise are unable to afford the necessary tools to realize their place as world class performers. With these instruments, they study in the finest schools and conservatories such as Curtis Institute of Music, The Juilliard School, New England Conservatory, USC Thornton School of Music and Colburn School. Graduating from these stellar programs, they appear before audiences at Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center to name a few.
