Our faculty come from leading orchestras, chamber ensembles, conservatories and university programs. They come to Sewanee each summer to perform, teach and inspire the next generation.


Each summer, Sewanee assembles leading conductors from across the world who are passionate about music and educating the next generation of musical leaders.


During the 2019 season, the Sewanee Summer Music Festival explored the beauty of our natural world and the intimate connection between music and nature. Programming reflected a broad range of music that is inspired the beauty of our natural surrounding.

“The day I left Sewanee was the first day I wanted to go back.”
