Throughout the festival, a series of performances by talented up-and-coming musicians participating in the residency will provide audiences with an opportunity to catch a glimpse of some of the classical music world’s future stars. This series of “Moonlight Sonatas” performances featuring top-tier young artists at the Carey Institute will be free and open to the public. This year’s program also features a “Buddy Day” on August 14, in which approximately 30 students from musically underserved schools will participate in a full day of interaction with the Residents and Masters, culminating with a performance in the evening.

There is no admission charge for Master classes, but reservations are appreciated. Contact CHPF or call 800.843.0778.
