Programs of iPalpiti Artists International
Based in Los Angeles, iPalpiti Artists International is a non-profit organization formed to support, promote and develop the careers of exceptionally gifted young musicians, thus securing a future generation of artists who will pass on traditions of all time and carry classical music into the next century.
Annual summer iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates in Los Angeles features iPalpiti & Soloists (a touring consortium of 26 prize-winning young musicians from around the world). 13 CDs are released on TELOS and YAI Records. Promotion and and establishment of residency for iPalpiti is the organization’s long-term goal.
Featuring selected prize-winning young professional musicians from around the globe in the iPalpiti Orchestral Ensemble under the direction of Eduard Schmieder, the Festival encourages artists to find their “own voice,” performing as iPalpiti Soloists in solo and chamber ensemble concerts.
Transitional Program is designed to provide assistance, guidance and counsel to young musicians with respect to their careers.
The Educational Fund provides immediate assistance to students in need of tuition, summer programs, concert attire, fees, etc.
Through the Instrumental Fund, fine instruments are provided for a period of time.
Throughout the year, selected artists are featured in Benefactors Concert Series in private homes as well as in public concerts.
Leo Frankel Memorial Award Fund - all selected young artists receive full-tuition scholarship, travel, room & board expenses, and stipend.
The Mentor Program involves student musicians at music academies and public schools in underserved areas, allowing them to participate as auditors of the professional-level residency rehearsals and master classes, and attend performances, forming relationships with their ‘elder’ colleagues and gaining insight into a musician’s career.
The Student Coalition for the Arts (for 7th to 12th graders) cultivates the growth of interest in classical music while building a future audience, encouraging concert attendance through personal contact with institution and Laureate musicians.
