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
Young Concert Artists, discoverer of today’s greatest talents, is also devoted to creating future music-lovers. Through Young Concert Artists’ Annaliese Soros Educational Residency Program artists give extensive educational activities and mini-residencies, talking to and playing for over 50,000 students each year, before or after their formal concerts.
Young Concert Artists plans mini-residencies to meet the needs of each community. Through the Annaliese Soros Educational Residency Program we offer a variety of events: Mini-Recitals, Lecture-Demonstrations, Master Classes, Clinics, and Informal Talks. And we are always happy to entertain new ideas.
"Young Concert Artists is the most wonderful start to any musician's life. The young musician needs concert experience and must be able to 'practice' this constantly. This is something that YCA provides in abundance. It is because of Young Concert Artists that I am able to make music today."
"How amazing that 50 years have gone by! It feels like yesterday that I was traveling to play the concerts arranged through YCA. It was such a fantastic time, starting off on the most incredible journey.”
