Visiting Masters

Listen and learn as an international lineup of visiting artists lead master classes with aspiring young professionals and Chicago-area music students.

Part of the 2020 Festival Remixed series, Visiting Masters welcomes cellist Alban Gerhardt (June 19), pianist Andreas Haefliger (July 24) and violinist Christian Tetzlaff (August 7) to conduct virtual master classes with young musicians by remote. All classes begin at 12PM. Members of the public are invited to log in to our website and watch the fun.

Visiting Masters is free and open to the public. Master classes take place in the Claudia Cassidy Theater at the Chicago Cultural Center*. A series inaugurated during the 2019 Festival, past Visiting Masters include: violinist Augustin Hadelich, harpist Yolanda Kondonassis and soprano Maeve Hoglund.


*Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Claudia Cassidy Theater is closed. The 2020 Visiting Masters series will take place via digital media.
