Five-Year Plan

For 60 years, the Bowdoin International Music Festival has built and sustained a renowned summer institute specializing in a profound path to musical growth: the study of solo and chamber music.

To continue our success and ensure that growth aligns with our mission, we must regularly and deliberately reflect and plan for our future. As we approach the conclusion of our prior strategic plan and emerge from years of COVID-related obstacles, we take this opportunity to do just that: understand the priorities of our constituents, identify ways to better serve our mission, and articulate our goals in a new strategic plan.

We identified three strategic opportunities to better serve our mission and pursue our vision:

1. Ensure that all admitted students, regardless of financial need, can enroll in the Festival program
2. Retain and recruit exceptional faculty
3. Increase our audience

Thank you for for reading our plan. We welcome your participation.
