The BMF opened the doors at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, in 2003 and since then welcomed many students from all over the country and abroad to experience its unique blend of chamber music education and performance.The rigorous combination of coaching, practicing, rehearsals, performances, theory classes, workshops and hands-on presentations on simple solutions for technical and collaborative problems is a trademark of the Blue Mountain curriculum.

The performance series offers three faculty chamber music programs and guest performances and master classes ( the 2006 guest artist is a prominent Serbian pianist Boris Kraljevic). The students also present two concerts featuring the pieces they worked on during the festival. All activities are open to the public and promoted in the local media and community organizations. The visitors of the BMF students’ and faculty concerts will enjoy unique, theme-oriented and stimulating performances.
