Summer Music Summit
The Lang Lang International Music Foundation™ introduces Summer Music Summit (SMS), a musical workshop collaboration, with the Midwest Young Artists (MYA) in Chicago, IL.
Since the Summer of 2012, The Lang Lang International Music Foundation™ has partnered with MYA, a full-curriculum pre-college music school in Chicago, IL. Each August, Young Scholars and MYA students work together in a week-long celebration of collaborative music. Scholars and Students are placed in chamber music ensembles, assigned a piano concerto and receive daily coaching on their music. Housing with an MYA host family is provided, fostering camaraderie among all young musicians. The friendships made at Summer Music Summit outlast the week-long workshop, creating a unique network of musicians.
In addition to performing in two Chamber Music concerts, the week-long program culminates with an exciting performance opportunity on the Jay Pritzker Pavilion stage at the historic Ravinia Music Festival, where Young Scholars perform their Piano Concertos for over 7,000 audience members.
Our Young Scholars have entertained over 17,000 classic music lovers of the greater Chicago area!
