Rader YACP Archive

Since 2015, Chamber Music Society of St. Louis has partnered with the Preparatory Program of the Community Music School at Webster University to mentor young musicians interested in playing chamber music. The program, funded by the Rader Foundation, has provided outstanding students the opportunity to study and perform in small ensembles with guidance from area professionals. We are fortunate to have had a number of highly-talented young people participate in our program, and are truly grateful for consistent financial support and dedicated musical guidance.
