Classical music performed to the highest artistic standard
Offering a beautiful escape into the mountains and an intensive educational summer music program all in one package, Hunter International Music Festival is a unique, two-week music festival experience focusing on both solo and chamber music training. Our mission is to offer young talents from all over the world with an equal opportunity to study with our world-class artists, and to provide audiences with classical music performed to the highest artistic standard.
Our faculty is a group of internationally acclaimed artists and pedagogues who focus on the development of every young musician at the festival. All members of the faculty and staff live on campus, sharing meals and their free time with the students, which creates a unique community atmosphere bonded through music-making and learning.
The Hunter International Music Festival (HIMF) enhances the cultural life of northern New York by bringing internationally recognized artists to Hunter, NY and presents a wide range of classical and contemporary music.
