The mission of the SSMF is to educate talented young musicians from around the world through close work with faculty mentors, intensive orchestral and chamber music study, and frequent performance. The SSMF fosters an atmosphere of collaboration and inspiration and promotes the belief that all people are elevated through the experience of making and hearing great music together.
The Festival was established in 1957 to provide a comprehensive training program emphasizing performance experience. Sewanee not only prepares students for the challenges professional musicians must meet, but also makes them lifetime lovers of music.
Each summer, 200 aspiring young musicians from all over the United States and abroad join more than fifty teachers, performers, and internationally recognized guest artists to create a musical community in Sewanee. Within this community, students receive musical training of the highest caliber and draw from the wealth of experience of a distinguished faculty.
