Workshops and Festivals

Every year, Pacific Lutheran University’s Department of Music hosts a variety of workshops and festivals. Many of these events bring high school students from Washington, Idaho and Oregon to the PLU campus. Members of the community have an opportunity to attend workshops and / or simply attend the beautiful performances these workshops provide. These workshops and festivals feature guest clinicians and PLU faculty clinicians and cover a wide variety of topics.
