Typical Schedule

Here is a sampling of music activities:

  • Orchestra rehearsals are scheduled every day, and performances are weekly.
  • Chamber music sessions are scheduled four times per week. There are ample performance opportunities each week.
  • Each student has a weekly private lesson.
  • Each studio has at least one class per week.

While our daily schedule is packed with musical activity, we make sure to take time out for fun. Mondays are designated as "no-play days" when students may take time for hiking, caving, swimming or an optional field trip to a regional attraction.

Throughout the Festival, the Residential Life staff plans activities such as:

  • Early morning trail runs
  • Dorm movie nights
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • and other age-appropriate social activities.

Past regional field trips include:

  • The Space and Rocket Center, Huntsville, Ala.
  • Opryland Hotel and the Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, Tenn.

The 2018 schedule will be similar to the 2017 schedule. You can view last summer's schedule here.
