Clarisa Colton, a freshman at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, has been accepted for summer study this year at the Brevard Music Center Institute, one of America’s premier summer training programs and festivals. The 15-year-old cellist was also recently named to the Georgia All State Orchestra.

The highly selective Brevard Music Center Institute for gifted musicians boasts Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart as its artistic director, and violinist Itzhak Perlman will serve as the first soloist there this summer.

Four hundred students enroll at Brevard each year, from nearly every state and around the world. Applicants must not only have a strong musical background and experience, but also provide teacher recommendations and perform at an audition. All students and 60 artist faculty members live and work on the Music Center campus—180 wooded acres in the mountains of western North Carolina, near Asheville.

 

This year’s summer program will last for 6 weeks, from June 20–Aug. 3.
