Proudly sponsored by Arn Sprogis and Margot Woods, Anne and Roger Smith, a group of young artists is selected each year to take part of the festival and work alongside established ensembles and artists from around the world.  The program offers a different experience to the normal learning environment of a Music Department or Conservatorium, and is equally distinct from the traditional Music Camp environment.
