The Manchester Music Festival (MMF) Young Artists Program is a full scholarship, five-week intensive chamber music festival for string players and pianists, ages 18-26.  Young Artists receive daily coaching sessions by a faculty composed of world-renowned artists and pedagogues. Young Artists will also have the opportunity to perform in weekly public masterclasses and take private lessons with the distinguished faculty members. In addition, they will benefit from forum discussions addressing principles of entrepreneurship and career development that will assist them in forging successful paths as professional musicians.

The Young Artists program relies on the generosity of individual donors.

Full Scholarship: $3,000
Half Scholarship: $1,500
Total 2020 Scholarship Fund Goal: $48,000
