Event Description

Tailored for entrepreneurs in any field, this collective discussion at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (in the Seminar Room) will explore the intersection between career development and community engagement. 

Beth Feldman Brandt, from the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation, will lead the conversation along with representatives from Astral, a local incubator for the nation’s most talented emerging classical musicians, as well as members from the Philly-based Jasper String Quartet.  The dialogue will focus on the importance of community engagement and how it can build the skills and experience that young professionals need to be successful.  Come prepared to add your perspective from your discipline and the ways in which you hope to grow your career and expand your impact on society in return.

Directly following the panel discussion at 3 pm, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society will present guitarist Jason Vieaux in a solo recital, performing works that traverse five centuries of music from three continents.  Vieaux—an Astral alumnus and co-founder of the guitar department at the Curtis Institute—”makes the single guitar seem like a body of instruments at work, an orchestra of sound” (Philadelphia Inquirer).

In addition, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is also offering $5 off general admission tickets that day for those who show their e-ticket to the admissions representatives at the main desk.

This SOYP event is presented by the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society in partnership with the Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Astral.  Have questions?  Please contact Erik Petersons at or 215.569.8080.
