Chamber Music Concert Series

2018 Season

Each summer, the internationally acclaimed Faculty Artists of the Rushmore Music Festival who mentor our talented students in the Music Academy program, present a professional series of chamber music concerts in the Black Hills. This summer, there are two different programs, "Unrequited Love" and "Fantasies & Fireworks", each to be performed once in Spearfish and once in Rapid City. The final student concert is also open to the public and features performances by the top selected students and concludes with a student chamber music competition, where the Grand Prize is awarded by the faculty while the audience helps choose the winner of the Audience Choice Award!
