About the DMC Summer Festival:

Since the 1950’s, our organization has offered summer educational programs to our community. In addition to the growth of our cornerstone programs – Summer Strings and Summer Bands – the last several years have seen the launch of Summer Sprouts, a program for beginning string players, the Summer Festival Orchestra, and the Chamber Music Intensive. These programs, in tandem with our Charles Ives Concert Series, a partner program to CMI that celebrates the Ives legacy with performances by world-class artists of American music, form our Summer Festival. Click on each of the links above to read more about the corresponding programs.

The DMC will continue to offer its Summer String Fellowship while CMI will continue to offer its Chamber Orchestra Concerto Competition and Piano Competition. The Ives Series will put out its third annual call for scores. More information on all these programs will be released later in February.
