The AFA Summer Music Festival offers intensive music-making experiences and camaraderie in a supportive environment for Houston’s young musicians and has been a part of the community for over 25 years. Led by renowned faculty artists who are outstanding performers and educators, students make noteworthy progress – both individually and in ensembles – that will impact their lives as they continue to grow as musicians.
The Summer Music Festival offers programs for musicians in grades 3-12 that last from 1-5 weeks, including large and small ensembles, technique classes, masterclasses, studio classes, sectional rehearsals, music theory, ear training, and other enrichment studies. On top of the musical skills and knowledge gained, students also benefit from the diverse group of young musicians from across the Greater Houston area. Each session includes performances that make up the AFA Summer Concert Series, a free and family-friendly concert series.
