We’re in the process of putting together an exciting “All-Star” online festival for our students and alumni. Details to come! Although we are not able to have a physical festival this year, we are already presenting exciting virtual events through Next Fest Connects.

All of our events are free, thanks to the generosity of donors and a grant from the Williamson Foundation. We strive to be a resource for our entire community of artist, students and audiences. Please join us for these events and help us support our innovative programming with a tax-deductible contribution.

Next Fest Connects
