Music Festival

The Southwestern Adventist University Music Festival welcomes you

Every year, the Department of Music at Southwestern Adventist University has the pleasure of hosting an exclusive festival for high school and academy musicians. The festival features a variety of opportunities for instrumentalists and vocalists, including the opportunity to perform in a world premiere at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.


In addition to the festival ensembles, elite musicians have the opportunity to audition for a chance to win a music scholarship. Students that audition have the chance of being selected as a Scholarship Finalist have the opportunity to perform in a Showcase Recital and receive reimbursements for their transportation, food, and lodging.


Every year, the Festival continues its tradition of bringing both musical masterworks and new music to the stage. The Southwestern Music Festival has featured artists such as Eriks Esenvalds, Kim Andre Arnesen, Craig Courtney, and American composer Brandon A. Boyd.
