Summer Music Festival

Summer Music Festival
June 28 - July 4, 2015


The 25th Annual Fredonia Summer Music Festival has a long history of providing young musicians with a friendly and relaxed setting for musical growth. Set on the beautiful campus of The State University of New York at Fredonia and housed in the university's School of Music, the Fredonia Summer Music Festival takes advantage of the campus' first-rate facilities and world-class teachers. Many of the festival faculty are also professors at the university. Outstanding performers and teachers provide unique opportunities for learning, improving technical skills and expanding musicality.

This year, the Festival continues its tradition of excellence while expanding to include a new Honors Solo Vocal Camp for high school students interested in further developing their skills as a solo classical vocalist.

The Band Camp is open to winds, brass and percussion students with performance opportunities in large ensembles, chamber music, jazz and more. Students in both camps will attend daily musicianship classes (conducting, theory, music technology, etc.), participate in master classes, attend special evening performances, and have time for individual practice and recreation.

Together, the two camps offer students outstanding quality and exceptional value. Limited scholarships are available.
