Meadowmount School of Music Launches New Initiative

As part of a new concert series in nearby Whallonsburg, New York, six Meadowmount student concerts will be streamed live on The Violin Channel this summer



The Meadowmount School of Music (MSM) announced a new collaboration for its summer season with the neighboring town of Whallonsburg, New York.

The new initiative will see Meadowmount students performing in the town's historic venue, the Whallonsburg Grange. Meadowmount has already sent one of their pianos to the Grange as a long-term loan in preparation for the launch of the series.

The Meadowmount School of Music's Summer Session is taking place from June 25 - August 13. Established in 1944 by pedagogue Ivan Galamian, the program offers a 7 week summer program in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York for aspiring professional string players.

Former students include Itzhak Perlman, Ani and Ida Kavafian, Kyung-Wha and Myung-Wha Chung, Jesse Montgomery, Rachel Barton Pine, Pinchas Zukerman, Jaime Laredo, Michael Rabin, Yo-Yo Ma, Lynn Harrell, Joshua Bell, and James Ehnes.

The 2022 faculty comprises new Artistic Director Janet Sung, I-Hao Lee, Gerardo Ribeiro, Ann Setzer, Ivan Ženatý, Molly Carr, Anna Petrova, Jutta Puchhammer-Sédillot, Patricia McCarty, Hans Jørgen Jensen, VC Young Artist Sihao He, Julia Lichten, Kikuei Ikeda, and Steven Rochen.

VC Artist Matthew Lipman and Philip Setzer are among this year's Guest Artists.

Six Meadowmount student concerts will be live-streamed here on The Violin Channel on Wednesday nights at 7 PM EST as part of our exciting partnership.
