The Maestro Foundation nurtures young classical musicians and encourages the appreciation of classical music.

Experience what many call the country’s finest chamber music series. The Maestro Chamber Music Society Concert Series offers an immersive experience in an acoustically exquisite private home, designed and ideally suited for the genre. Concerts feature chamber music’s most revered artists performing for a deeply committed audience in intimate proximity to the stage. Soon to begin the 34th Season, concerts raise funds and visibility for Maestro’s nationwide Instrument Lending Program. We lend high quality stringed instruments and bows to gifted young musicians during the most critical stage in their professional development.

Maestro Chamber Music Society Concert Series

We have an extraordinary 34th season planned. While it is our deepest desire to present each and every concert as scheduled, we will continue to follow the guidance of public health officials and adhere to prescribed standards and protocols. Maestro’s roster of artists for 2023-24 includes Quartetto di Cremona; Le Consort; Sitkovetsky Trio; pianist Mishka Rushdie Momen; violinist Jame Ehnes with pianist Orion Weiss; and pianist Dénes Várjon.

We are also fortunate to have two concerts sponsored this season by the Jerry and Margaretta Hausman Charitable Trust. They have provided generous unwriting for the Takács Quartet and cellist Steven Isserlis with pianist Connie Shih.

We thank Maestro’s sponsors and our membership for their passion for chamber music and their steadfast support even in challenging times.

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 of Music, USC Thornton School of Music, and Colburn School Conservatory of Music. 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.
