An international scholarship program for gifted artists 12 – 18 years of age, Morningside Music Bridge brings together the finest emerging artists to perform on an international stage and measure themselves against the very best young performers globally. Participants engage in a month of intensive training and performances. Resident Artist faculty are drawn from the world’s leading performing organizations and schools. Morningside Music Bridge typically sees applicants from more than 20 countries and has awarded scholarships to students from every continent. 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.

Each July the Morningside Music Bridge program is in residence at the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA, USA.  MMB 2024 will take place from July 7 to August 2.

The Program offers an intensive, month-long round of private lessons, masterclasses, orchestra, chamber music and numerous recitals.

Its primary objectives are to:

- identify and promote outstanding young artists;

- create enhanced educational and performance opportunities;

- create professional development opportunities;

- promote inter-cultural understanding and mutual respect among all participants;

- expand community and corporate-based support for cultural interaction in the participating countries;

- develop long-term partnerships between classical music communities internationally.

- build a bridge of understanding and creativity that spans the world.

“Attending Morningside Music Bridge opened up a world of new contacts, new repertoire and new opportunities.”

—Yuja Wang, Pianist & MMB Alumna
