LA MUSIC FESTIVAL
The TAPS LA MUSIC FESTIVAL brings communities together through live music while enhancing the lives of young musicians in the process.
10 collegiate or post-collegiate participants will apprentice with professional musicians as they perform chamber music, take lessons, attend masterclasses, and participate in community outreach activities together, coaching local students in the Los Angeles area who are receiving music instruction for the first time.
AUGUST 1-14, 2021
All accepted in-person participants will receive free tuition!
In partnership with the Switzer Center and Hollywood Scoring Studios, the TAPS LA Music Festival will run from August 1-14, culminating in a series of five concerts. The festival will take place in-person, and accepted participants will be offered a fellowship covering tuition.
