Chestnut Hill Concerts Inc
The mission of Chestnut Hill Concerts is to foster the appreciation and enjoyment of classical music.
Chestnut Hill Concerts was founded in 1969 by Dr. Elsa Redlich in Killingworth, Connecticut. The concerts evolved from informal performances that were associated with Dr. Redlich's summer program, the Chestnut Hill Creative Arts Center for Children. She was eager to provide a venue for the then sixteen-year-old violinist Yoko Matsuda. Many of the performers were drawn from the Yale School of Music, who also served as faculty at the camp. From the beginning, the concerts sought to involve young people in experiencing fine classical music. That goal has persisted throughout Chestnut Hill's history.
