Apply for Music Program

The music program is for advanced students ages 18-30, but particularly those currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate music school programs. The program includes performing opportunities including recitals and concerts. A special collaboration with the Fine Arts students, performed at the end of the summer session, celebrates the unique combination of the two schools.

ATTENTION: In anticipation of complications due to the 2024 Olympics in France, the application process will begin earlier this year.

We are now accepting applications for the 2024 Session. The deadline for Submissions is now December 1.
