Meet the Festival Participants Here

The Sarasota Music Festival is an intense three-week experience of chamber music, master classes and concerts, with the coaching and performance of chamber music as its focus. Each week all participants are assigned one or two ensembles. Students take part in public concerts and play at churches and service organizations in the community. Students may also be selected to perform in the Festival’s orchestral concerts.
