The AFA Summer Music Festival has offered world-class intensive music-making experiences in a supportive environment for Houston’s young musicians 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 sessions for students in grades 3-12 in Orchestra & Chamber Music, Piano, Vocal, and Composition that last from 1-5 weeks. These unique experiences include large and small ensembles, technique classes, masterclasses, studio classes, sectional rehearsals, music theory, enrichment classes, and more. On top of the musical skills and experience gained, students benefit from being a part of a highly diverse group of young musicians from across the Greater Houston area.
