The Reinecke Youth Chamber Music Competition and Fellowship Program is an unparalleled opportunity for aspiring young musicians to become immersed in the field of chamber music, and to have the opportunity to be mentored by professional musicians. Three winners are selected as fellows each year, and these fellows are paired with a member of the Monument Piano Trio for a series of coaching sessions to take place during the winter of the year. The culmination of the program is a public concert during the CMSMD season, where each Fellow performs a solo piece and then join to perform a chamber music work (chosen in collaboration between the fellows, mentors, and private teachers of winning students). The Fellowship concert takes place in Lutherville, Maryland and is professionally recorded. At the time of this concert each Fellow is presented with a $1000 award to further his/her musical studies. The 2016-2017 Fellows will also perform at various other venues throughout the region, in an effort to build performance experience and exposure.
