- July 18- “Imagination in any Language: From the Vignettes of Schumann to the Mastery of Chamber Music by Ravel,” music by Schumann, Brahms, Korngold, Shostakovich and Ravel performed by artist faculty
- July 24 – Student recital
- July 25 – “Homage to Mr. Gingold: The Versatile Mentor,” music of Beethoven, Kaufman, Britten and Franck performed by artist faculty
The festival focuses on both solo and chamber repertoire for strings and piano and is co-founded by two veteran arts administrators, Dr. Giselle Elgarresta Rios and Robert H. Smith, Jr., both of Miami, FL.
