Young Concert Artists makes no claim to quality in its name. But over 54 years, through its choices of artists it has helped to develop careers, in many cases, major ones.

The evidence was all around at the organization’s annual gala concert on Tuesday evening at Alice Tully Hall. Three brilliant young soloists performed concertos with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, led by the veteran conductor Gerard Schwarz, who was himself discovered by Young Concert Artists as a trumpeter in 1971.

There were no repertory adventures here, and that undoubtedly suited the gala audience members just fine. On their way to a fancy dinner being set up in the lobby, they were clearly not looking to be challenged, but they were just as clearly involved in the performances and loudly appreciative.

The violinist Benjamin Beilman, 25, is already widely appreciated in New York, thanks to appearances with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and others. Here he played Sibelius’s concerto, which has had several workouts in New York this season, most notably by Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in February.

But this performance, strong and uncannily accurate, could stand proudly alongside any of them. Mr. Beilman speaks double and triple stops as if they were his first language.
