The Festival begins each summer with the New Music Workshop for composers and instrumentalists. That’s followed by the six-week Chamber Music Session for instrumentalists and ensembles. The week-long Chamber Choir and Choral Conducting Workshop closes the summer season. Each participant receives a fellowship that includes tuition, housing, and meals.
Fellows receive daily coachings from Festival artists and perform weekly in Emerging Artist Showcase concerts and alongside internationally acclaimed artists in the Festival Artist Series on the main stage of the Music Shed. All performances are professionally recorded and livestreamed.
