The Next Festival of Emerging Artists

The Next Festival of Emerging Artists is a two-week immersive experience for the modern string player, composer, and choreographer. It provides a comprehensive approach to entrepreneurial career-building, contemporary music performance, and intensive, personalized artistic development.


For the 2019 Season (May 26-June 8, 2019), we’ll be joined by our guest artist, contemporary violinist Miranda Cuckson, as well as our resident entrepreneurial artist Jessica Meyer. Students will participate in masterclasses and perform concerts at Music Mountain (Falls Village, CT), Egremont Village Inn (Egremont, MA), and National Sawdust (Brooklyn, NY), playing the music of living composers. 


We’re also excited to continue our composer/choreographer workshops with Grammy and Pulitzer Prize Winner Aaron Jay Kernis and Tony Nominee choreographer Christopher D’Amboise. Our 2019 Composer/Choreographer Workshop will be held at The Center for Ballet and the Arts (New York, NY).


The Next Festival is deeply committed to helping the artists of tomorrow progress to the next step in their careers and to forge their own unique musical identities. Generous scholarships enable students to attend, regardless of financial circumstances.
