PCMF Season 8

Strings: August 1-11, 2020

 2020 Update re: COVID-19

Due to the ongoing complications caused by COVID-19 we have CANCELLED the 2020 season. We will greatly miss all the faces and music, and we eagerly await 2021. We are also offering online lessons with our faculty members. Click here if you would like to schedule one today!

The Pacific Crest Music Festival is an intensive California summer chamber music festival located in Dunsmuir, CA.  
Each summer, student artists ages 14 and up are selected by audition to participate in 10 days of musical heaven. At PCMF, our mission is to provide students with a diverse musical and social environment. Every year, scholarships are provided to both international and U.S students who do not have the financial means to attend such a high level, summer chamber music program. 
During their stay they will learn the art of chamber music, receive private lessons, participate in master classes with guest artists, and perform in concert for the public.
PCMF is a 501(c)(3) organization.

The Pacific Crest Music Festival is a highly intensive, fun, and diverse summer chamber music program located in Northern California. Click here for more program information or here for a sample daily schedule.

This last August, incredibly talented student artists from around the globe gathered in Northern California for intensive chamber music training. Public performances, master classes, daily rehearsals, outreach events, and exploring the area were all part of the daily experiences.


The 2020 Season is just around the corner, and we are so excited to get to dig into the music with all the students, both new and returning. 


“The best way to meet amazing people is through a common passion in music and chamber music.
I wish the week could have lasted forever.”   
- Miles C., 2016-18 PCMF student 

Known as the Pacific Crest String Quartet, PCMF's faculty regularly perform concerts and outreach programs for communities around Northern California throughout the year.
