The benefit concerts are an important annual „financial injection“ for the Society of the Friends and Patrons, without which we would be unable to fund numerous projects. They also serve as a live presentation of the school and its students. Countless great musicians have played at these concerts without remuneration for you and for us, often together with the school’s students.
We host our benefit concert annually, both for the sake of funding as well as for the presentation of our startup!music prizewinner. The law firm WilmerHale has kindly supported us with this venture for many years.
Our thanks go to Thomas Quasthoff, Andras Schiff, Gidon Kremer, Christine Schäfer, the Artemis and Kuss Quartets, Jörg and Carolin Widmann, Annette Dasch, Louis Lortie, Isabelle Faust, Tabea Zimmermann, Jochen Kowalski and many more.
