The 2017 e-poster for the Pierre Monteux School and Music Festival is attached. The Maitre (Maestro) founded the School 74 years ago, and it is still going strong.
One of the hardest things for instrumentalists to acquire in music school is enough orchestra experience to be truly prepared for the professional world. Monteux offers that experience in a beautiful location with great faculty and colleagues. In fact, after two summer at Monteux I won my first orchestra position in the New Haven Symphony as a sophomore at Yale University!
Here is a link to their website:, where you will find lots of information about the School. You can also apply online. The deadline for 2017 is February 15th.
Please share this information with all of your students, friends and colleagues. Thank you!
