Afternoon Program: Masterclasses & Limelight Concerts

Come and watch the magic happen as specialists and students practice and perform every weekday afternoon 1:30-5pm. Admission is only $5 for the entire afternoon!

If you're planning to attend multiple afternoon programs and evening concerts (listed below), consider purchasing a Festival Pass for $125!

During the Masterclasses, the passionate and talented emerging young musicians get instruction from the world class guest artists in front of the Festival audience’s eyes and ears. The audience watches the progress that is happening right there on stage.

Limelight Concerts feature both students and guest artists in unique configurations, playing the music that excites them the most. From solo tuba to chamber music ensembles, each 30-minute concert will be curated by a different member of the PRISMA Festival Orchestra or Guest Artist roster.
