About Lyra Music:
Lyra Music is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission of enriching the lives of youth and the community through classical music. The Lyra Music Festival and Workshop, co-directed by Akiko Sasaki and Rachel Odo, is an outstanding summer classical music event combining a world-class series of concerts with a nurturing residential summer program for young musicians ages 9-18. Comprised of two concurrent camps – the Core Curriculum and the Young Artist Program – the Lyra Workshop attracts outstanding faculty and high-level classical music students who live, work and play together for 3 weeks, making the most of Lyra’s unique program located on the beautiful campus of Smith College, Northampton, MA. 

Lyra students work on solo and chamber ensemble repertoire in an intimate and supportive environment where they can focus on musical development and personal growth through individually tailored curriculum in a conservatory-style setting.  Lyra Workshop students also benefit from their direct connection with the Lyra Music Festival presented in conjunction with the camp. Internationally recognized guest artists provide masterclasses and concerts for students and the surrounding community.
