Schwob Summer Music Festival

June 26-July 2, 2022
Applications will open on Feb 1, 2022

 There will not be a live concert at the end of camp this year, instead all chamber groups, ensembles, and vocalists will record their repertoire for a digital release of the concert.


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!
