Since the Pocono Mountains Music Festival was founded in 2009, it has introduced the whole of the northeast Pennsylvania region to a great variety of top-quality musical performances from different genres. In events that feature experienced as well as up-and-coming artists, the community gets to enjoy some of the most creative performances in the region. Different categories are featured, including everything from jazz, cabaret, and pop to dance, musical theater, country, and chamber music. As a non-profit charity organization, the Pocono Mountains Music Festival is doing a great service to the community. It’s one of the best music festivals in PA!
Performing Art Camp
The Performing Art Camp is one of the most popular programs aimed at 9th graders all the way to 12th graders. Tuition costs $300, although scholarships are also available. Here students get to learn about the various disciplines of art from the true masters of each discipline. The camp lasts for two weeks and includes daily musical classes and workshops. Classes cover tap dance, choreography, musical theater vocal coaching, musical theater dance, and many others. At the end of the two-week camp, two students are chosen to receive the Herman Legacy Prize honor. The winning students will perform with Broadway stars accompanied by the local orchestra.
Festival Production Apprentice
If you would like to work behind the scenes and learn how to put together such great performances, you can take part in the Festival Production Apprentice program. Each year 10 people are chosen to work on the production and creative aspects of the events. It’s not about performance and the apprentices will not be required to perform. Instead, they will be working on public relations, social media, house management, stage management, backstage crew, lighting design, props and costumes, company management, and many others. This is an opportunity to work with, assist, and learn from choreographers, directors, and musical directors.
Music for All Seasons
Even before the festival starts, there are pre-festival events which give the audience a glimpse of what to come. Previous seasons have seen such great acts as The Marcy & Zina Show, and The Music Of The Brill Building kick off the season. By the time the main event started, people were converging to the music venues with anticipation and enthusiasm. In 2018 such performances as Love Letters, Cabaret Night with Andrew Keenan-Bolger, and Jerry Herman proved to be a huge success.
