Students of the Orchestral/Chamber Program begin the first week rehearsing daily in a chamber group. In week two, each student will also join the Festival Orchestra and work side-by-side with artist faculty of the MasterWorks Festival. Students will receive weekly private lessons, chamber coachings, and study standard orchestral literature, performing weekly concerts in the nationally renowned Twichell Auditorium. Past guest conductors include David Bowden, Miriam Burns, Delta David Gier, Darryl One, Andrew Sewell, John Nelson, and Daniel Meyer.


Piano/Chamber Weekend

The Piano Program is open to serious, motivated students, ages 14-26, desiring to develop and refine their musical skills in a positive and encouraging atmosphere.  Each student receives a weekly private lesson, and has opportunities for constructive comments and performance analysis through repertoire classes and masterclasses with faculty and guest artists. Students begin week one in a chamber ensemble culminating in a performance in nationally renowned Twichell Auditorium.  Other performances will include student recitals, masterclasses, repertoire classes, orchestra concerts, worship services, and the MasterWorks Concerto Competition. Prayer and devotional time, as well as festival-wide spiritual activities, foster deep faith and Christian witness. Please refer to the spiritual life section for more information.



The String Intensive Study Program (SISP) is designed for passionate and motivated students desiring to refine technique, learn new repertoire, and prepare for auditions and performances. Combining one-on-one teaching with four hours of required daily practice time, this program encourages students to effectively integrate faith and art. SISP is open to qualified students ages 14 to 26. SISP faculty members oversee practice time, teach private lessons, and coordinate SISP classes. Students in SISP may also dual enroll in the orchestra program.


WISP Weekend

The Wind Intensive Study Program is two weeks long, broken up by instrument. Students who take part in a two-week Intensive also have the option of attending the festival for all four weeks by participating in the Orchestral program for two weeks (Additional tuition costs will apply). If you are a wind/brass instrumentalist who is interested in an intensive study program that is not listed above, please contact Chip Hill to ask if an individualized ISP might be crafted for you for summer 2021.

Are you wanting to Volunteer? We think that’s great!

The second opportunity for involvement with CPAF is that of service. Many hands make light work. There are plenty of small, but vitally important tasks involved in every performance event. Assisting the CPAF staff with these activities is a great blessing and requires little time on the behalf of volunteers. These services include ushering, assisting with stage setup, setup and clean up, as well as other tasks.
