Clear Creek practice room

For two weeks each summer The Clear Creek Music Festival transforms the rural community of Halfway into a place where music fills the air:  young artists are encouraged to grow in a non-competitive atmosphere and discover the connection of music to other arts and the natural environment; ideas are shared; new works are created; and the interaction of students, faculty, and community in making and listening to music inspires all. These transformative moments are made possible primarily through the generous support of individuals, foundations, and businesses.
