This year’s annual Arkady Fomin Scholarship Fund Gala will be held in-person at PianoForte Chicago and by livestream internationally on The Violin Channel.

Everyone will receive complimentary access to enjoy this year’s Gala performances!

Since 2015, the North Shore Chamber Music Festival has been thrilled to award scholarships to over 45 talented young artists from around the world, all thanks to the generosity of many wonderful individual supporters and sponsors.

The AFSF was created by the North Shore Chamber Music Festival to celebrate and perpetuate the legacy and spirit of Arkady Fomin, the renowned violinist, beloved teacher and conductor whose inspiration and guidance touched the lives of hundreds of artists including many of today’s top performers.
