Schwob Summer Music Festival

June 27-July 3, 2021

COVID-19 Statement

We are aware that the current situation regarding COVID-19 is constantly changing, and may impact our ability to host a normal camp session in summer, 2021.

 

We will accept applications until June 1, 2021, and will limit the total number of participants to allow for social distancing. All classes will take place inside large spaces or outside, and participants will be given regular temperature checks. Sanitizing stations will be available in all locations, and mask-wearing will be strictly enforced at all indoor locations.

 

The Schwob Summer Music Festival provides a prestigious  musical environment for woodwinds, brass, percussion, string bass, voice and guitar students. During the festival, students will rehearse, perform, and receive a high level of group and individual music instruction, enhancing their technical and collaborative skills.

The festival includes masterclasses and lessons with Schwob faculty, elective courses, guest artists, and fun activities!
