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. During their stay they will learn the art of chamber music, receive private lessons, perform in concert alongside world-class professional faculty, and participate in musical outreach events for the local community.   

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.


We are already eagerly awaiting the 2020 Season. Apply now to reserve a place, as space is limited.


“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.”
