Advanced Chamber Program

Work and perform with one of the most respected festival orchestras in the nation! You’ll study with world-renowned instructors, observe rehearsals, attend performances, and meet musicians and guest artists with the Sun Valley Music Festival. From chamber music to opera workshops, this program’s unique atmosphere creates exceptional learning opportunities.

The registration deadline for the Advanced Chamber Music Program has been extended to April 15, 2020. If you need additional time to submit audition materials and recordings, please contact the Festival’s education department: 208.622.5607 or Even if asking for an extension, please submit the application as soon as possible; you may send recording links in an email when they are ready.

The Advanced Chamber Program is for advanced students who are committed to serious study in their discipline, and who possess a curiosity and desire to work in intimate settings where peer and faculty critique is encouraged and appreciated. Students will work directly with Sun Valley Music Festival musicians, conductors, and guest artists and attend Festival Orchestra rehearsals.  In the past, guest artists Itzak Perlman, Time for Three, Renee Fleming, Joyce Yang, Gautier Capuçon, and Ray Chen have worked with students.
