Children and youth

The Catherine Filene Shouse Chamber Music Institute was formed in 1997 and serve young musicians in professional development capacities. Every year, the Shouse Institute chooses three to four young ensembles that are emerging to professional status. Each group actively participates in professional development and performance opportunities, from mainstage concerts, yoga, and coachings with senior artists, to community engagement initiatives out in numerous community venues.

The Festival underwrites housing, transportation, and per diem for each group so they can focus on their art and access the resources they need to succeed. This program has helped make the Festival unique among our counterparts. We also collaborate with the Sphinx Organization to host an Apprentice Ensemble to participate in Shouse activities.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
