EMMF Music Performance Institute

July 13th - August 2th, 2020



Situated in the beautiful mountains of Northern Pennsylvania, the Endless Mountain Music Festival Institute offers the rare combination of natural outdoor beauty with the opportunity to perform and study with world-renowned musicians from the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Cincinnati Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Baltimore Symphony, New York Ballet and many more ensembles from around the world.

Students take private lessons with principal players from the Festival Orchestra (two lessons each week), participate in coached chamber music ensembles (two string quartets/quintets, a woodwind quintet, and a brass quintet with drum set), and perform with professional musicians in the Festival Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Stephen Gunzenhauser. 

This is the perfect setting for college students wishing to gain insight into the music performance profession, and increase their exposure to a wide variety of repertoire. Selections performed by the Festival Orchestra and Chamber Ensembles will represent both "standard" and new innovative contributions. The Festival Orchestra will perform six concerts over the course of the three-week festival. Chamber ensembles will also perform a series of "Inspiration Concerts" in a variety of venues across the region. 


We are looking for top-notch students!
