“I was someone who didn’t have the money to afford my first choice school, Manhattan School of Music, but Music for Humanity provided me with a scholarship. I needed more money than was given and one of the co-founders, Barry Adelman, went out of his way to create a fundraiser in my hometown to raise the additional funds. I’ve never been so moved by someone’s unwarranted generosity. That quality is what makes Music for Humanity a truly unique organization. Money should never be the reason young musicians can’t follow their dreams.”
-Maxfield Panish, Violinist
The Nova Quartet
The Nova Quartet met in January 2015, all sharing a great deal of passion towards chamber music. They were selected as one of four groups to participate in Juilliard’s honors chamber music program from September 2015 to May 2016. Since last September, they have been working together almost every day and performed in various concerts, constantly aiming for a higher level of string quartet playing. They are currently working towards their main recital project as an honors group in March. The quartet is being coached by Laurie Smukler, Roger Tapping, and Joseph Lin.
