Thank you for joining us online

Dear Friends,

Thank you for joining us online this season. We missed seeing you in person, but we are grateful that we were still able to be with each other as a virtual community because music is better together.

Many members of our Festival community made this online season possible, and we extend our deep appreciation to:

  • our dedicated faculty and guest artists who led 115 classes via Zoom and gave 4 new online concerts
  • 248 talented students from 20 countries who Zoomed in from all over the world to play in masterclasses (sometimes at 2 AM their time) and joined group discussions about new music, musicality, technique, recording, auditions, competitions, and career development
  • over 235 generous donors and 11 online concert sponsors who made it possible for the Festival to offer all events to our students and audience members completely free of charge
  • you, our loyal audience, who tuned in to 50 event livestreams from 83 countries, culminating in 20,059 views.

We look forward to reuniting in person when it’s safe to do so. Please mark your calendars for our 2021 Festival Season, June 26 – August 6.
