Testimonials

 

“Such a high level of artistry and musicianship–perfect place to explore your creativity. Best festival EVER!”

instrumental participant 2017

“I am blown away by the program you have created for new music! The freedom to express ourselves, enjoy the teachings of others, and have the release of all that academic tension is beautiful and I was often brought to tears listening to my new colleagues perform. I can’t tell you what a safe haven you have created for us, especially as vocal musicians. We are constantly judged out in the “real” world, and to have two weeks of non-judgment to hone our crafts and work with such a talented group of faculty and colleagues is a breath of fresh air. Compared to other summer vocal institutes, NMOP is by far superior in content.”

vocal participant 2015

“The selection of composers and instrumentalists was OUTSTANDING! I have never had a more enjoyable experience with new music. Everyone in attendance and the faculty were supportive, caring, educational, and 100% open to new ideas and collaboration.”
