    2024 Concert Lineup: The Schwab Academy of Music returns for its 4th season starting July 1, 2024. The Academy will present three weekends of orchestra and chamber music performances beginning July 6 and will culminate with the 14th Annual Violin and Viola Competition on July 20 & 21. The Academy offers high-level orchestra and chamber music concerts performed by our talented student musicians playing alongside our faculty of professional mentors. With low ticket prices ranging from $5-15 (and with kids under 10 free!), The Schwab Academy is a "justly beloved part of Ventura’s music scene and well on its way to becoming one of the premiere music festivals on the West Coast" (Ventura Breeze, 2023).
    What Our Participants are saying: Participants of all ages describe the student experience of being fully immersed in the power of music: “It’s very friendly, very motivational - it’s just a good vibe,” says violinist Carlos Ozuna. Susan Philbrick adds, “It doesn’t matter how old you are, what your background is; we’re all together in the communal pleasure of music.”
