Founded in 1947, the Music Academy of the West is among the nation’s preeminent summer schools and festivals for gifted young classical musicians. The Academy provides these promising musicians with the opportunity for advanced study and performance under the guidance of internationally renowned faculty artists, as well as guest conductors and soloists. Located on a lovely 10-acre garden estate, the Music Academy presents more than 175 public events annually, including student recitals, masterclasses, orchestra and chamber music concerts, and fully staged opera.
The Music Academy of the West gardens and facilities are available for rent by nonprofit organizations for fundraising, musical events and rehearsals, and seminars and meetings. The Academy is unavailable for rentals during its eight-week summer school and festival, which runs from mid-June through mid-August each year.
