For over thirty years and for nearly 700 concerts the Beethoven Festival has been dedicated to bringing together outstanding classical soloists to perform together. The concerts are primarily focused on chamber and solo performances, but have also included chamber orchestra and full orchestra over the years. The directors feel that there are many opportunities for young artists to work in full orchestra, however, the training received in studying chamber music is essential to a deeper study of style, performance and great ensemble playing. To that aim, the Festival will again present its Young Artist Institute program: the intense and concentrated approach to professional solo and ensemble performance.
The Young Artist Institute faculty artists are all top professional performing artists who were chosen for their dedication to sharing what they have learned with the next generations of classical artists.
