Thank You For An Amazing Summer!

We extend heartfelt gratitude to you: our faculty, students, patrons, and community partners, for making this 2017 Festival season an inspirational musical journey. Your participation has enriched the hearts and minds of thousands of patrons during the past six music-filled weeks.

Audiences totaling over 15,000 filled venues and classrooms at over 100 concerts and events. With the support of many generous Festival friends, we were able to offer over 80 free public programs, expanding the Festival’s reach across generations of all ages. Children experienced live music at local libraries and audiences resoundingly applauded stunning performances at Studzinski Recital Hall and in venues from Portland up the coast to Woolwich.

This year’s students, who represent 23 countries and 30 states, have gladly received your warm Maine welcome. Your enthusiasm for their musical excellence will continue to resonate as they leave the Festival.

With our 2017 season now at a close, we begin to plan next year’s Festival. If you have not already joined us as a donor this season, we invite you to add your support by making a gift today.

Thank you for helping to make this a truly special year.  We look forward to joining you again in 2018!
