Morningside Music Bridge is an international meeting ground for the most gifted young violin, viola, cello, and piano musicians ages 12-18 from around the globe. Every July we bring the great artists of tomorrow for a month of intensive music making on a full-ride scholarship. The only criteria for acceptance is outstanding talent. They are joined by some of the world’s most respected performing artists and teachers. In our first 25 years, about 1,000 young artists have benefited from the barrier-free music making experience offered by Morningside Music Bridge. Our alumni have become today’s leading classical musicians performing on stages around the world, in key positions with the best orchestras, and teaching at top music schools. The program is operated administratively through the Morningside Music Bridge Foundation with generous support from the Chan family.
