guest artists

Our goal here at Lamont is to provide our students with all of the opportunities possible to build their future in the arts. We find that students learn from each other, from our world-class faculty and also from great artists who are out in the field doing what they–the students–want to be doing when they graduate. Therefore, we make it our business to bring in multiple great guest artists every year so that the students can interact with and be inspired by their heroes. Here are some recent pictures of some of these wonderful musicians as well as a list of who has visited us in the past few years...
