Since its inception, LIEDER ALIVE! has developed numerous important partnerships in the community. The Music Salon at Salle Pianos provides an intimate and elegant setting for our recitals and master classes. In January 2013, the organization was a co-sponsor of the Yehudi Menuhin Chamber Music Seminar and Festival, an intensive training program for young professional chamber musicians directed by the Alexander String Quartet, under the auspices of San Francisco State University’s Morrison Chamber Music Center.


We also have a burgeoning partnership with the Goethe Institut, co-presenting lecture/performances—such as the “Wagner and Buddhism” program offered on our Liederabend Series last spring, and film screenings in their downtown venue featuring some of the great Lieder artists of history. In addition, LIEDER ALIVE! has developed an important collaborative relationship with the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in San Francisco in the past year, with the presentation of a program of works by Schumann and Brahms for mezzo-soprano and viola featuring Ms. Scharich, Mr. Yarbrough, and acclaimed pianist Roger Woodward at the German Residence.
