Young Artists Program

 

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. Close to 200 applications are received from over 20 countries around the globe to fill just 17 spots.

Occurring annually every summer in scenic Manchester, Vermont, the 2020 Young Artists Program will take place from July 6 to August 9, 2020.

Young Artists live in the Manchester Music Festival House and receive daily coaching sessions, participate in weekly Masterclasses, and have the opportunity to take one-on-one lessons with a faculty composed of world-renowned artists and pedagogues. They perform every Sunday in our Young Artists Concerts held at the Manchester Community Library.
