IMIF tour performers were given a warm welcome by the residents of Symphony Manor (Roland Park, Baltimore) - a lunch reception in a private dining room followed by a concert packed by residents and members of the community (this concert was advertised on NPR!). Students shared their musical experiences and aspirations with the audience in an engaging question and answer session.
The evening performance at the Bel Air Armory featured the Mozart and Brahms quartets along with performances of Handel, Ysaye, Leshnoff, and LeBeau by The American Virtuosi (Borowsky Family). For the final selections (Andrew Broadwater's Jubilation and The Final Stride) the tour group was joined in a happy musical reunion by local IMIF participants Katelyn, Ira, Simona, Rey, and Lisa.

"IIMIF is an amazing place where you learn to master what you love with some of the greatest teachers in the world."
"I loved that IIMIF focuses on the emotional and spiritual side of the musician just as much as the technical side. I've been to several summer programs, and this sets your program apart."
"The focus on a holistic approach and comprehensive musicianship made for an incredible experience. There are not enough words to capture how grateful I am for what I learned."
"I especially loved that this festival is so intimate. Great things come in small packages!"
