The health and safety of our Festival participants is our number one priority. EMF is working with local and state health officials, our Guilford College hosts, venue partners, and reopening specialists to update guidelines and protocols designed to keep our students, faculty, staff, and patrons safe.
Updates for Summer 2021 include:
- Smaller class sizes
- Decreased student density indoors
- Modified dining services
- Increased use of open-air spaces
- COVID-19 testing on arrival and on a schedul during the Festival (TBD)
- Follow recommended health and safety protocols (wear a mask, wait 6-feet apart, wash your hands)
EMF will continue to follow local, state, and federal mandates and may need to quickly shift in-person programming, as needed.
Eastern Music Festival offers optional classroom instruction in several areas related to the performance and business of music that completes our rigorous program. Our classes and seminars give students an opportunity to converse with faculty about issues that every musician encounters throughout a professional career. Open dialogue and honest advice enhance students' experiential learning.
Presented twice-weekly during the Festival's concert season, EMF Young Artists prepare full-length concert programs. Maestro Schwarz and EMF's artistic leadership select a mix of musically and technically demanding repertoire that challenges each young artist. At EMF, all are inspired and challenged by the repertoire and the environment.
Classical Guitar Summit
Open to classical guitarists ages 14 and up, Eastern Music Festival's Classical Guitar Summit offers in-depth summer study with top instructors in an outstanding musical environment. Participants will collaborate with other instrumentalists and delve into new territories of chamber music, pedagogy, technique, and performance.
One paid fellowship position is available for a young professional trombonist, who is between the ages of 23 and 33. As an Eastern Music Festival Trombone Fellow, this musician will have the opportunity to perform second trombone with the Eastern Festival Orchestra (the professional orchestra in residence) and in other Festival ensembles (as programming needs dictate.) Stipend and Room and Board are available.
