In 2018, Kent/Blossom Music Festival will celebrate 50 year of music by bringing 45 young artists from around the globe together with principal members of The Cleveland Orchestra, the Miami String Quartet, members of the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music and other major artists for five weeks of intensive chamber music study and performance at the professional level.

Since its founding in 1968 by George Szell and Louis Lane, more than 2,200 such young artists and world class professionals have shared the nationally recognized Kent/Blossom experience. Blossom enjoys a significant position of enriching the international music field. The program has propelled hundreds of remarkable young musicians into the ranks of major orchestras, opera companies and conservatory facilities throughout the United State and around the globe.
