Sewanee Summer Music Festival

Sewanee Summer Music Festival
June 19—July 18, 2021

Learn more about how SSMF changes lives in our Annual Report.
We missed our time on the mountain together this summer, but over 100 students joined us for our first ever Virtual SSMF!


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.


The Festival Director is working with our faculty snd guest conductors to develop programming that is both exciting for our participants and presentable under current COVID-19 restrictions. A full repertoire list for the Cumberland Orchestra and Sewanee Symphony will be announced in January 2021.

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