Led by internationally renowned cellist Yehuda Hanani, this annual event combines an educational residency program featuring immersive master classes for 50 hand-picked emerging artists from around the world with evenings of classical music concerts for the public. The mission of the Catskill High Peaks Music Residency is to infuse students with love and enthusiasm for their musical vocation, instill a spirit of musical adventure and discovery, and imbue an appreciation for past traditions amongst both students and new audiences. Additionally, local students from musically underserved schools are paired with older, more experienced instrumental counterparts for one-on-one lessons in violin, viola, cello and piano.
