Young Artists' Performance Series

Music Shed  •  Free Admission

Catch a rising star as the Festival presents its Young Artists' Performance Series — performances by summer Fellows of the Yale School of Music attending Norfolk's New Music Workshop and Chamber Music Session. These casual concerts are in the Music Shed and are free of charge.

Throughout the years Norfolk audiences have heard hundreds of emerging artists who have gone on to successful professional careers. Norfolk alumni perform with the most illustrious musical organizations in the world: the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony, the Saint Lawrence, Calder, Muir, Miró, Ying, Brentano, Shanghai and Maia String Quartets; the Claremont and Eroica Trios; and new music ensembles such as eighth blackbird and SŌ PERCUSSION. Syoko Aki, Claude Frank, Pamela Frank, Frederica von Stade and Richard Stoltzman are all former students of Norfolk.

Whether you are an aficionado or a chamber music novice you will enjoy the wonderful performances and casual environment these programs offer. Families with children are most welcome.

Repertoire and ensembles are chosen weekly. Program details will be posted as they become available.
