May 11: Young Musicians Foundation Chamber Ensembles

Sundays Live welcomes the Young Musicians Foundation Chamber Music Series.

Since 1989, the YMF Chamber Music Series has been led by acclaimed concert pianist Delores Stevens, artistic director of both the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society and Chamber Music Palisades. The program has grown to support seven ensembles, two professional performances, and a competition for young composers. Young musicians ages 11–18 are selected through annual auditions to receive a series of coaching sessions with leading professional musicians from the Los Angeles area.

YMF was founded in 1960 by renowned pianist and educator Joanna Graudan to counter the lack of chamber music training for young musicians in Southern California.

The program includes chamber music by composers Anton Arensky, Elliott Carter, Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Muczynski, Franz Schubert, and Dimitri Shostakovich.
