The 61st annual Sewanee Summer Music Festival (SSMF) will begin on Saturday, June17, with nearly 200 students arriving for four weeks of instrumental lessons, classes and performance opportunities. Students from across the country and around the world participate in the festival.
The Sewanee community has always been an enthusiastic audience for the festival. Last year’s very popular pre-season ticket offer will be repeated this year. As incentive to attend multiple concerts, SSMF is offering a limited-time opportunity to purchase a season ticket for only $70. Season tickets are available from April 20 through May 10; after May 10, the price will be $90. Tickets may be purchased through the website <ssmf.sewanee.edu>, or by check made out to SSMF and mailed to 735 University Ave., Sewanee, TN 37383. SSMF is unable to accept orders placed by email or phone.
Admission to a total of 12 concerts is included in the price of the season ticket. The concerts include seven Faculty Chamber Music Concerts, four Sunday afternoon orchestra concerts, and the Jacqueline Avent Concerto Competition. Individual tickets may be purchased in advance for $15 each or $20 at the door.
The Sewanee Summer Music Festival, a program of the Music Department of the University of the South, offers music students in high school through graduate school a month of rigorous music study, rehearsal, and performance opportunities in two orchestras and chamber ensembles.
