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 33rd 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 33rd 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 current roster of artists for 2022-23 includes Emerson String Quartet; mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter with pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout; violinist Robyn Bollinger with pianist Sergey Schepkin; the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center featuring pianists Alessio Bax and Gloria Chien with violinist Ben Beilman and cellist David Requiro; pianist Wu Han, violinist Philip Setzer and cellist David Finckel; pianist Benjamin Grosvenor; and pianist Jonathan Biss.
We are fortunate to have two concerts sponsored this season by the Jerry and Margaretta Hausman Charitable Trust. They have provided generous unwriting for the Dover Quartet and pianist Benjamin Grosvenor.
We thank Maestro’s sponsors and our membership for their steadfast support during these 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.
