The Philadelphia International Music Festival (PIMF) is a summer music program directed by Kimberly Fisher, Principal Second Violin of The Philadelphia Orchestra, offering student musicians from around the world the unique opportunity of spending up to four weeks immersed in music education and performance training with members of the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra.

Our outstanding summer music programs include: private lessons, master classes and faculty recitals with members of The Philadelphia Orchestra; daily orchestra, ensemble and chamber music rehearsals; daily course electives including: conducting, choir, composition, sight-reading, music theory, ear training, music industry, and history of sacred music; ample solo performance and competition opportunities; day trips to Ocean City, New Jersey (America’s Favorite Family Beach Resort) and to Philadelphia’s Mann Music Center for a Philadelphia Orchestra outdoor concert, and more.

There are five “in-person” summer program options for musicians ages 11 – 19: Symphony Orchestra, Solo Performance Preparation, Piano Studies, College Audition Preparation, and Chamber Music Intensive. There are numerous online options that welcome students from around the world. PIMF also includes Summer Solo Intensives for college students and young professionals.
