Valley Concert Society

Among the purposes listed in the constitution of the Valley Concert Society is the phrase “…to further the musical education of the younger members of the community.” One of the ways the society seeks to achieve this purpose is by giving talented music students in the community the opportunity to work directly with some of the nationally and internationally recognized professional artists that come to perform in our season series. Since 2016, the Valley Concert Society has been working with local music teachers to present masterclasses with guest artists as clinicians.

On Saturday, February 24, 2024, The Valley Concert Society will host a master class for string students. The clinician will be Molly Carr, violist of the Juilliard String Quartet.
Online applications will be made available here at the beginning of January, 2024.
