We are so very thankful to all those who continue to believe in the arts and the education of today's youth.
Much of PCMF's success comes from our committment to remaining a small and personalized experience for students. A typical season consists of 6-8 faculty members working with 15-20 students. This ratio leads to a significant amount of one-on-one instruction for all of our young musicians.
Each year we provide several scholarships to students whose families are not able to afford the cost of summer music programs. In additon, we also seek donations from patrons of the arts. These contributions play a significant role in covering the costs of housing, administration, and performance venues.
You can donate through Paypal, check, or contact Michael Whitson via our contact page.
"The Pacific Crest Music Festival was one of the best musical experiences I've had. Aside from getting out of the city and making new friends, we were able to make music and learn from one another."
- Sam R., 2013 violist
"I'm so glad I found PCMF. I had so much fun...It has literally been the fastest week of my life."
- Miles C., 2015 violinist
