Summer Institute in Los Angeles (June 2 - June 30, 2017)

The Summer Institute is America’s one-stop-shop for art song, comprising five programs tailor-made for art song students at every stage of their development (Studio Artist, Young Artist, Professional Fellows, Recital Fellows, and Pianist Programs), from freshmen in college to professional recitalists. A month-long rigorous art song bootcamp, over 20 internationally distinguished pianists, singers, composers, and lecturers give daily thematic master classes, lectures, and private coachings in their area of expertise: covering the breadth of art song from lieder, to mélodie, to art song, 1800 - modern day. Whatever your interest in song repertoire, work with the experts in the field on bringing your favorite songs to dynamic and informed life, learn to consider songs you thought you knew from a different and enlivening perspective, encounter new exciting repertoire, either forgotten gems or music hot-off-the-press from our resident composers, and build relationships with fellow art song enthusiasts that will last a life-time.


Don't Miss our New CD!

Available on CDbaby, and for streaming on Spotify, iTunes and more! Featuring over 15 alumni performing commissions, world premieres, and songs featured during SongFest's 20 year history, by some of the best of modern day American song composers.


SongFest is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
