The Walden School Creative Musicians Retreat seeks creative musicians interested in composition, electronic music, choral music, music performance, improvisation, and music pedagogy.

We have reached the heartbreaking and difficult conclusion that, due to the ongoing and uncertain effects of the pandemic, Walden will not offer its Creative Musicians Retreat in 2020. We held onto all possible hope for CMR 2020 for as long as we felt practical, and unfortunately, time has run out.

It’s a great disappointment to us, as the Walden team has worked the entire year to try to bring you and your fellow participants to our magical week together in June and plan for what promised to be another amazing week of CMR.

The Walden School Creative Musicians Retreat is such a special experience, and that is in large part thanks to our wonderful participants. We wish it could be different.

Please note, too, that this decision to cancel in 2020 relates to Walden’s Creative Musicians Retreat only. Walden and our Young Musicians Program Leadership Team has reached no conclusion about summer 2020 in Dublin, and planning for that program continues.
