There is a wonderful atmosphere of camaraderie at the Festival. Whether serious conservatory student or adult amateur, students enjoy learning from faculty, from nature, and from each other. Most Festival participants are American, but there is a definite international flavor with students from Germany, England, Australia, Korea, and other countries.
