Morningside Music Bridge

Morningside Music Bridge 2022 saw a successful return to a full in-person program following two summers of COVID-19 adjusted programming. Join us in 2023 as we celebrate our 27th year. The program will be held July 10 to August 4, 2023, at the New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Morningside Music Bridge embodies the highest international standards of excellence, bringing together outstanding young musicians (violin, viola, cello, and piano) ages 12 -18. Participants engage in a month of intensive solo, chamber music, string orchestra training and performances. Resident Artist faculty are drawn from the world’s leading music organizations and schools. In 2022 Morningside Music Bridge saw applicants from 24 countries and scholarship places were awarded to students from every continent. 

For 2023 Morningside Music Bridge has introduced a Residency opportunity for a young creator (any discipline) to bring a creative dream to life at MMB.

Since our inception in 1997 more than 1,000 young artists have benefited from the barrier-free music making experience offered by Morningside Music Bridge. Students participate on a full scholarship basis with tuition, travel and room and board costs provided through the generosity of our sponsors. Our alumni have become today’s leading classical musicians, performing on stages around the world, holding key positions with the best orchestras, and teaching at the top music schools.

Equally important are the cultural bridges and life-long friendships Morningside Music Bridge participants, guest artists, and partner organizations enjoy.

Our young musicians perform in memorable public venues, participate in Morningside Music Bridge’s concerto competition (competing for significant cash scholarships) and bond with one another through the exquisite language of music. The program is non-academic.

Whether you are a young artist or a fan of great music making, we look forward in welcoming you to Boston in July of 2023.
