January 19 – March 17

Held January through March every year, the festival brings a diverse selection of artists to the island for scheduled events and performances. This year’s lineup includes the Red Hot Chilli Pipers – a Scottish rock band – jazz legend Jonathan Butler, BalletX, Kerri Dietz & Halcyon Quartet, The Mountaintop—a play about the reimagined last night of Dr. Martin Luther King – the Ferio Saxophone Quartet and more! Although originally the emphasis of the festival was on music, it has become quite diverse over time to cater to different groups and continues to pursue the founding mission of “opening new horizons of excellence to our young people.”
