Perlman Music Program 4th Annual Stowe Residency

Perlman Music Program

“Founded by Toby Perlman 20 years ago, The Perlman Music Program (PMP) offers unparalleled musical training to young string players of rare and special talent.”

Having an opportunity to listen to talented, young string players is a privilege these days as music programs in schools continue to decrease to the disappointment of many.  The annual Stowe Residency by the Perlman Music Program lets Vermonters experience and share in the joys of beautiful music played by the next generation of classical music leaders.
