We also have exciting performance opportunities for students in the summer (a program in Italy and a professional orchestra that plays a summer series).
International Alba Music Festival
The International Alba Music Festival is an intensive two-week experience, combining study and performing. Our faculty is joined by an international roster of performers from throughout Europe who come to Alba to perform and interact with our faculty and students. Alba is the capital of the Italian wine industry, and home to Cerreto Wines and Ferrero Chocolates. Alba’s two concert halls and five major churches (which are wonderful performance venues) teem with activity as our faculty and students together prepare and participate in more than a dozen concerts.

River Concert Series
A six-concert series by the Chesapeake Orchestra, an excellent professional group with our teachers sitting in the principal chairs. Our students, as appropriate, are hired to play in these concerts, giving them the opportunity both for summer employment and for a chance to play music from the heart of the standard repertoire at a high level in a situation where they work in an orchestra together with their private lesson teacher.
