Educational Residency Program
“Young Concert Artists, the non-profit management that may well have invented the mini-residency 25 years ago, has helped to nurture a generation of artists who are better prepared for work in the community. Their residencies are well organized and wide ranging.”
– SYMPHONY magazine
YCA’s brilliant young artists are dedicated to extensive educational outreach. Through the Annaliese Soros Educational Residency Fund, YCA artists visit local schools to lead master classes and perform interactive mini-concerts accompanied by informal talks and audience Q & A’s.
Praised for being among classical music’s best ambassadors, YCA’s young musicians possess the unique ability to inspire young people, serving as important role models while helping to foster interest and build the audiences of the future.
Through the educational residency program, young people nationwide have the opportunity to meet and interact with artists of their own generation, and YCA artists have the chance to broaden their experience, beyond performing public concerts, by engaging with communities across the country.
