The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations

Carnegie Hall - Ensemble ACJW, Paris & Geneva Residency

Ensemble ACJW is program of recitals and master classes for international talents presented by Carnegie Hall and the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.

The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations actively engage with prestigious institutions that share their commitment to excellence and social empowerment. They created a tight partnership with the Carnegie Hall of New York, internationally renowned high-standards institute of music, and decided to engage in a new residency program with the ACJW Ensemble.

Artists Residency

For the first time in 2014, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute presented The Song Continues in Paris in partnership with the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.nIn the Paris residency, six international young singers and two piano accompanists had been selected through a rigorous application and audition process to participate in a weeklong series of master classes led by Marilyn Horne and collaborative pianist Martin Katz, from December 1-5, 2014. The classes and coaching sessions were held at Studio Bastille, with the generous support of Atelier Lyrique, Opéra national de Paris, and concluded with a stunning salon-style concert at Musée Jacquemart-André on December 4 and a second performance for students at Studio Bastille on December 5. The artists sang excerpts from works by European and American composers.

This program was met with such success, that the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations and the Carnegie Hall of New York decided to renew the experience of a partnership.

ACJW Ensemble

In 2015-2016, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations and the Carnegie Hall of New York gave their input for new artists residencies, which show their desire to create powerful experiences in an environment that fosters lifelong relationships and invite young artists to explore song repertoire and connect with audiences. Eight members of the renowned ACJW Ensemble, group of young talented musicians, have been selected to participate in this program and meet young artists from the Paris National Conservatoire. Led by the famous Meredith Monk, workshops and coaching sessions will be held at Studio Bastille.

These residences will conclude on private recitals, held in November.
