The Clear Creek Music Festival, set in the rustic beauty and pristine air of Pine Valley, was founded in 2011 to provide gifted musicians ages 16 to post-college with two weeks of intensive study in voice, piano, cello, or music composition balanced by recreation in “the Alps of eastern Oregon.”
Students develop their performance skills in a stimulating, non-competitive atmosphere through daily lessons, masterclasses, chamber coaching and larger ensemble work. This festival provides time dedicated to solo repertoire as well as exploration of new works: ideal for recital preparation, and multiple public performances.
