Our Mission

The Rushmore Music Festival was founded on the guiding principles of artistic excellence and musical accessibility through education and performance. With the highest quality instruction, we provide students with musical enrichment opportunities that directly cultivate their skills in communication, self-discipline, and leadership. Faculty chamber music concerts further strengthen our mission by inspiring the youth and enriching the cultural life of the Black Hills to promote inclusivity, diversity, and civic engagement.
