Distinguished Alumni

Alumni, we want to hear from you! Please update your contact information here.

There are Meadowmount alumni performing in virtually every major orchestra and teaching in virtually every major University and Conservatory in the United States. Alumni of Meadowmount have won every major string competition worldwide. In addition, the following alumni are soloists, chamber music performers, concertmasters and principals of major orchestras.

The thing that makes Meadowmount so unique is the atmosphere that comes from the history of this place. My experience has been so enriching and so much fun that it seems this is the only place I should be during the summers. “…Student quote
