The 2016 Summer Festival at Lewis & Clark College will be a welcoming event for musicians, teachers and music lovers.  Our guest artists bring a wealth of expertise and talent that will enlighten and challenge participants.

Please Note: This year the Festival is being presented concurrently with the Oregon Music Teachers Association (OMTA) State Conference, celebrating their 100th Anniversary. All OMTA sessions and guest artists have been programmed by the OMTA State Officers and are designed specifically for music teachers.
