"The quaint lobstering village of Winter Harbor is a relaxed vacation spot, drawing tourists from around the world. Unforgettable views of Mount Desert Island and the open ocean, dramatic rock formations, thunder holes, hiking trails and opportunities for whale watching are some of the reasons why people return to this rarely visited section of Acadia, year after year.
Our week-long Music Festival offers instrumentalists and singers a unique opportunity to study and perform together, as solo, chamber, choral and orchestral musicians. Participants work with a faculty of internationally acclaimed artists and teachers, in ensemble coaching sessions, master classes and choral-orchestral rehearsals; private lessons are available as well. Collaboration in performance with artist faculty is an important element of the program.
Instrumentalists and singers have daily chamber music coaching. All participants are offered performance opportunities, with distinguished faculty, in historic Hammond Hall and musical evening 'soirees' at Point Alva. Arrangements may be made between artist faculty and participants for daily private lessons."
