Education

The Fischoff National Chamber Music Association sponsors the nation’s largest chamber music competition. The Fischoff distinguishes itself from all other music competitions by remaining true to its core mission: to encourage and educate young musicians in the discipline and expression of chamber music. Committed to music education, Fischoff partners with its distinguished Competition alumni to deliver free, innovative music programs to Michiana’s children and youth. Programs are presented in schools, community centers, and after school programs. Fischoff’s programs give local students first-hand, close-up, personal experiences with some of the finest chamber musicians in the world.

Since 1995, these programs have served more than 95,000 children, reaching more than 4,000 children annually placing particular emphasis on underserved and at-risk communities.
