The Next Festival of Emerging Artists is an immersive experience for the modern string player, composer, and choreographer. It provides a comprehensive approach to entrepreneurial career-building, contemporary music performance, and intensive, personalized artistic development.

“The spirit of the place is warm, friendly, informal, yet serious and reminds us why we make music together. There was time to ponder and work on every nuance, a rarity these days.”

–Pierre Jalbert, composer

“It is extremely rare to find a festival that fosters an environment of hard work and camaraderie while at the same time making contemporary music its primary focus. The Next Festival is an extraordinary home for new music and I encourage all open minded students to come and explore what the future holds!”

–Jeffrey Zeigler, cellist

“An ideal wellspring for artistic collaboration.”

–Derek Bermel, composer

“A sheer joy!”

–Jennifer Koh, violinist
