De Simone & Partners Young Artist Program

Dedicated to nurturing new talent, the Rome Chamber Music Festival seeks to further the education and performing experience of young talents.

Each year the festival invites students from across the globe and from the Robert McDuffie Center for Strings at Mercer University to participate in its young artist program. Access to prominent musicians and the opportunity to perform alongside them is invaluable to a young artist’s personal and professional aspirations.
