Welcome to the Acceptd application page for Eastern Music Festival.

STILL ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE FOLLOWING: Classical Guitar and Harp


Founded in 1961, Eastern Music Festival is an internationally-renowned classical music festival located in Greensboro, North Carolina. Eastern Music Festival is an outstanding summer educational experience for talented, dedicated young artists. 

*Proof of current COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all students, staff, and faculty of Eastern Music Festival.

EMF’s policy to enroll only vaccinated students and employ only vaccinated faculty and staff was adopted by our board of directors after taking in to consideration the best interests of the entire student body, faculty, staff and audience populations. It was based upon the advice of our medical and legal teams and the most current medical and scientific information available to us, including that from the CDC, the State of North Carolina, and Guilford College. We continually review the policy and have concluded that it will remain in place for the time being given the ongoing uncertainties regarding Covid-19 and its variants.
