With a faculty led by Itzhak Perlman and comprising some of the most gifted musical talents of our time, the Program offers an artistic and personal experience that changes students' lives forever. PMP seeks to ensure that the very best musicians can take advantage of this opportunity, regardless of their economic background or financial means.
