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 30th Anniversary 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
In celebration of Maestro’s 30th Anniversary, we have an extraordinary chamber music season planned for you. The roster of artists includes Christian Gerhaher and Gerold Huber; Nicholas Phan with the Jasper String Quartet; Sergei Babayan; Dunedin Consort; Ricardo Castro; Robyn Bollinger with Sergey Schepkin; Jerusalem Quartet; Hagen Quartet; and Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.
In honor of this landmark season, Dunard Fund USA has generously underwritten a concert with the Dunedin Consort, directed by John Butt. They will perform J.S. Bach’s Six Brandenburg Concertos on period instruments.
Tenor Nicholas Phan and Jasper String Quartet appear in this season’s Founders’ Celebration, sponsored by the Jerry and Margaretta Hausman Charitable Trust. The event includes a private performance followed by dinner with the artists. This special evening honors 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.
