A moment to breathe, not breath, to imagine and play beyond one’s wildest dreams, for audiences to catch! An experience – beyond all reason!

The Artemisia Foundation reveals and guides extraordinary young pianists - individualistic and unique - presenting some of the highest caliber classical music in New York City.  Nominated by faculty from leading music institutions, these young pianists come together to participate in master classes by renowned musicians, to perform in unique venues that serve to elevate broad community awareness of classical music, to engage actively in mentoring others, and to act as role models and ultimate ambassadors of the arts.

The Stella Series and Sessions in the Vault are laboratories for these remarkable young pianists to experiment and experience live performance and recording.  

We forge bonds...within our group and reaching out...
