The annual Rite of Spring benefit was a huge success! It was a fantastic evening—honoring CAG’s President of 18 years, Richard S. Weinert, with lively, spellbinding performances, artist tribute toasts, and heartfelt remarks throughout the evening. We were able to raise a record amount through this year’s event—more than $300,000!!!—and all our guests and supporters helped to ensure that.

As you know, CAG is a truly unique organization which helps young musicians as they begin their concert careers. We hope you got a glimpse of some of the talent we represent and that you will continue to join us for festive evenings, concerts, and events next season.

For more information about the Rite of Spring, our artists, or CAG’s general concerts and activities, please be in touch!

PS: if you didn’t get a chance to support the exciting programs that matter the most to Richard—like our education outreach program which sends roster musicians to public schools events around the country—please consider doing so here.
