Solbong Kim, Artistic Director

Leonard Bernstein

AMF is...

A Sanctuary for Artistic Freedom

A retreat where creativity knows no bounds. Musicians from diverse global backgrounds converge here, embracing artistic freedom and sharing extraordinary ideas in a setting unlike any other.

The Birthplace of Tomorrow's Masterpieces

With over 700 works premiered, we stand as a beacon of innovation in the musical world. Our commitment to new music and emerging voices makes us a hub for the creation of tomorrow's masterpieces.

A Provider of Authentic Musical Experiences

Our free concerts offer more than performances; they offer authentic experiences. During our summer season, we provide a richer variety of concerts than typically found in a small city, expanding access to classical music and transcending the transactional nature of standard concert-going.

A Platform for Musical Growth

We have hosted thousands of participants, including 500 fellowship recipients and countless world-renowned musicians, making the festival a pivotal leap in the musical journeys of emerging talents and established artists, shaping careers and fostering growth from student to professional stages.

A Cultivator of Lasting Connections

Here, music is more than sound—it's a bond. Participants form lifelong friendships and collaborations, leading to new artistic ventures and enriching the global music community.

An Enhancer of Maine's Cultural Landscape

Our presence contributes significantly to transforming Waterville into a cultural hub, enriching the community's artistic life and creating a vibrant cultural environment in partnership with local institutions.

An Invitation to Join a Musical Odyssey

Join us in this unique journey. Whether as a participant, patron, volunteer, or audience member, your involvement is crucial. Be part of a festival where each note played contributes to a more connected and inspired world.
