Our Vision

In 1976, Lord Yehudi Menuhin was in Bermuda to perform in the Bermuda Festival. While here, his visit to the string group at Warwick Academy sparked his interest and out of it grew his idea to establish a string quartet on the island that would provide instruction in stringed instruments to all of Bermuda’s school children. To take his dream to fruition, The Menuhin Foundation was created.

 

The goal of The Menuhin Foundation is to “foster and develop an interest in classical and other music and the playing thereof” and “to recruit teachers and organize and produce programs and concerts and other forms of entertainment and musical education.” (The Menuhin Foundation Act 1976.)

 

Through the commitment and dedication of our Board of Trustees, teachers and donors, The Menuhin Foundation has made music lessons accessible to thousands of Bermuda’s school children over the past 40+ years.
