The Academy offers student musicians high-level training and performance opportunities alongside professional mentors. Enroll in orchestra, chamber music – or both. Courses are offered at just $71 - an incredible value!

Concerts begin July 12. Come see why the Ventura Breeze calls Schwab "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."

Experience the power of Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony (July 13), plus Chamber Music Fridays (July 12 & 19) and the 14th Annual Henry Schwab Violin & Viola Competition (July 20 & 21). Tickets $5-15; kids under 10 free!


Schwab fun
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.”


Henry Schwab Violin & Viola Competition

The final weekend will feature the 14th annual Violin & Viola Competition in which area string players compete for the annual concerto competition’s $2000 top prize. All performances in the final round will be accompanied by the full Schwab Academy Orchestra and adjudicated by a carefully selected team of guest judges.
