SSMF Masterclass Series

The Sewanee Summer Music Festival is pleased to offer a series of FREE masterclasses with our acclaimed festival artist-faculty. Come prepared to perform, ask questions, and develop your skills under the guidance of these expert musicians. Not ready to play in the class? You can select to just observe. However, we strongly encourage everyone to participate, ask questions, and engage with our faculty and fellow students. Learn, grow, and be ready for your future. Now is the time.

Stay tuned for more masterclasses in the spring!
