Meadowmount School of Music Announces New Initiatives


The Meadowmount School of Music (MSM) has announced two new concert initiatives for the summer of 2022.

A new collaboration with the neighboring town of Whallonsburg, New York, 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.

Entitled „Concerts at the Grange,“ the series kicks off with two pre-season concerts. The first is at 3 PM on May 1, when violinist Nikayla Kim and pianist Miki Aioki will present a duo recital. Tickets will cost $10 for adults and $5 for concessions.

This will be followed by a second duo recital at 3 PM on June 19, where violinist June Chung and pianist Kyoung Im Kim will present works by J. S. Bach, Manuel de Falla, Henryk Wieniawski, and Cesar Franck.

In addition to the Grange series, six Meadowmount student concerts will be live-streamed here on The Violin Channel during the summer as part of our exciting partnership. Details to come!

The Meadowmount School of Music’s Summer Session will take 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.
