A New Home for Events
After years of presenting memorable musical events at Darnton & Hersh, we are excited to announce that future events will be under the auspices of Guarneri Hall NFP, a new not-for-profit classical music incubator whose home is a newly constructed, acoustically engineered and technologically advanced 85-seat performance space on the third floor at 11 East Adams in Chicago's Loop. Guarneri Hall NFP serves as a facilitator and catalyst for emerging musical artists, musical groups and music education initiatives.
The archive of past Darnton & Hersh events will remain on this website.

Darnton & Hersh Fine Violins is proud to be among the concert tour sites for 2018 finalists from the Aeolian Classics Emerging Artist Competition of Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. The Emerging Artist Competition, now in its second year, offers enrolled students at the Chicago College of Performing Arts an opportunity to compete for the Emerging Artist Award, bestowed upon an exceptional student or ensemble. The prize is a fully-funded commercially release CD on Aeolian Classics, and a concert tour of the Chicago area.
The Emerging Artist Award offers its winner a powerful professional tool: a debut album. Last year’s winner, pianist Pablo Suaste, has already gone on to successfully launch an active performance career, due in large part to the significant boost that his debut CD gave his budding career.
