Mission Statement
pianoSonoma Boston is a festival that promotes the development of young professional musicians (Artists in Residence) through leadership training and mentoring responsibilities while inspiring dedicated adult musicians of all backgrounds to engage more actively with their art form through private coachings, chamber music workshops, and public performances. The festival cultivates an active artistic community, encouraging both these Artists in Residence and program participants to develop collaborative relationships which will carry well beyond pianoSonoma. This emphasis on a collaborative chamber atmosphere along with the festival’s dedication to community outreach invites musicians and audience members alike to enjoy classical music as a shared artistic experience.

Artist in Residence Program
Our Artist in Residence program is a professional experience open to the most gifted and accomplished musical leaders of tomorrow. Our festival gives current conservatory students and recent graduates an opportunity to act as musical mentors for our serious adult participants. pianoSonoma Boston provides a stipend for all Artists in Residence.

Artists in Residence will lead and coach festival participants in guided rehearsals, private lessons, and performance classes. They will also perform in public concerts with other Artists and in private concerts with their assigned festival participants. We ask that Artists in Residence engage concert-goers through public speaking and active audience interaction, as we look to further our mission of expanding audience awareness of classical music.
