Kent Blossom Music Festival (KBMF) is a unique and prestigious partnership between Kent State University and The Cleveland Orchestra where young artists from all over the world practice and perform chamber music, receive private lessons and coachings, participate in masterclasses from The Cleveland Orchestra musicians as well as visiting guest artists, and learn orchestra repertoire to perform side-by-side with The Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom Music Center. Hosted at Kent State University and in the Center for the Performing Arts, the Festival is 5-weeks in length and begins this Summer on July 3rd and concludes August 8th.

Over 120 students auditioned for KBMF and only 43 were selected to participate. We have had students from the United States, Colombia, Mexico, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, Hungry, Taiwan, Ukraine, Canada, and more. On average, 15 international students participate each year. These extraordinary young artists will then have the potential to follow in the footsteps of some of our festival alumni who are currently: playing in world-class orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic and The Cleveland Orchestra; playing in professional chamber ensembles; or teaching at prestigious institutions such as Juilliard, Rice, Cleveland Institute of Music, Kent State University, and more.
