Music@Menlo holds Winter Residency Program, presents benefit concert

by Linda Hubbard on March 1, 2011

Music@Menlo’s seventh annual Winter Residency Program takes place this year from March 3 through 10 at Menlo School. The Program brings some of the classical music world’s elite young musicians to the San Francisco Peninsula for a week long series of special performances, a public benefit concert, and educational activities with local middle and high school students. Violinists Sean Lee, Michelle Ross, and Areta Zhulla; cellist Eric Han; and pianist Gloria Chien — all past participants of Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute — are this year’s artists-in-­residence.

While on campus, they will join forces with Artistic Director Wu Han and another Institute alumnus, violin­ist Alexi Kenney, for Music@Menlo’s annual benefit concert and reception on Sunday, March 6, at 4:00 p.m. in Martin Family Hall on the Menlo School campus. The benefit concert, which is open to the public, supports scholarship funds for Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute, a three­-week summer program that offers emerging young artists the chance to work with a world­-renowned artist­-faculty. Tickets are $50, $30 of which is a tax­-deductible. Tickets can be ordered online or by calling 650­-331­-0202. Seating is limited.
