the Meadowmount School of Music was created in 1944 by a pedagogue Ivan Galamian and offers a 7-week summer program in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York for aspiring professional string players.
Alumni include Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman, Jaime Laredo, Michael Rabin, Yo-Yo Ma, Lynn Harrell, Joshua Bell, and James Ehnes.
Due to the pandemic, this year’s program is taking place entirely virtual. “The main mission remains singularly focused on improving the skills of string players through intensive practice and total immersion in the study of string playing”, executive director of the Meadowmount School of Music Mark Hayman noted.
“Having the students record their performances gives us the opportunity to share these concert performances beyond the Meadowmount community,” he added. “Watching concerts online has become the new normal and we’re enjoying it!”
