“That Peter made it his priority to raise enough funds to provide substantial scholarships to participants is something that I will never take for granted…. This festival provided me with one of those rare paradigm shifts that illuminates the simple answers to a meaningful life.”

–Cellist, Columbia University, Manhattan School of Music

The Next Festival offers generous scholarships to enable students to attend regardless of financial circumstances. Deeply committed to helping the artists of tomorrow, the festival maintains a unique pay-what-you-can model to ensure that each participant can attend for a price s/he can afford. We are very proud to have met 100% of student need each season.

Because the festival is small (only 20 students), your gift will have a huge impact. Consider a gift to the Next Festival of Emerging Artists. This new and exciting hybrid education/performance experience looks to the future by giving opportunity to the artists of tomorrow. Your tax deductible gift will help support our wonderful artists and help us continue to create innovative programming.
