What to know
First-of-its-kind in concept and execution, the festival brings together over 100 international musicians each June in the historic spa town of Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. For over 20 years, the Hot Springs Music Festival pairs world-class mentor musicians from major orchestras, chamber ensembles and conservatory faculties with especially talented pre-professional apprentices–all of whom receive full instructional scholarships. The two groups play “side by side” in orchestral, chamber, solo recital, and choral repertoire. For two weeks, these musicians form a unique community, presenting over 20 concerts and 250 open rehearsals for music lovers from around the globe.
