Our student’s creative expression will be inspired by the natural surroundings, stylish accommodations, and the harmony created by a balanced educational approach. This environment helps build friendships and relationships within the cultural community of dedicated faculty and talented students. Our summer music festival program includes full chamber repertoire, solo performance opportunities, and large group ensembles.
