SummerFest Encounters delve further into specific topics often not directly related to programming. Past Encounters have covered in-depth considerations of music history and theory, roundtable discussions with composers-in-residence, and presentations on developing a successful career in music.
All Encounters are held at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library (Directions)
