2020 - 21 SEASON


PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR LIVE CONCERTS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE PRESENTED IN A VIRTUAL FORMAT

32nd ANNIVERSARY SEASON 2020-2021


We will begin by presenting our fall concerts online either via livestreams or by premiering videos, especially recorded for our organization. We are aiming to preserve the intimate “salon” feel of our series and to take you on a virtual journey throughout New York City. As always, you will have the opportunity to hear and get to know exceptional young artists who are destined to become our future “greats.”
