What are the best summer music camps/festivals/academies to go to?

I'm a sophomore in high school, I have a pretty extensive resume in terms of accomplishments. I won't go into detail, but don't refrain from recommending something because you think I can't make it. Anyways, I live in Texas, and going someplace close would be preferable but I am open to any location (in the continental United States of course).

    Well, it mostly depends on what instrument you play. There are a lot of excellent festivals that are for only one instrument. But some of the top in USA are the Aspen Music Festival, Tanglewood, and Brevard Music Center. Aspen is definately the most prestigious. If you are interested in chamber music, Marlboro in Vermont is top notch.

    good luck!

    Interlochen Music Camps (Michigan) are supposed to be good.


    If you're looking to work on All-State Music, University of Texas puts on a good camp to learn that music.
