On Monday, November 13, aspiring young musicians may register for the 2024 Pelham Music Festival, which will take place on January 20, 2024, at the Pelham Country Club. The Festival is open to any school-age Pelham instrumentalists, vocalists, soloists and ensembles, playing any style of music including original compositions. It is a unique opportunity for young musicians to perform in front of family, friends, and community, in a supportive and nurturing environment. Watching and celebrating your friends’ performances is another reason people return to the Festival year after year. Performers also receive a complimentary contemporary photography session with Liz Farrell and will receive a complimentary portrait.

Founded by Bob and Lauren Eicher in 2003, the festival has grown to 100 plus performers in 2023 and historically features a wide range of instruments, including violins, cellos, flutes, saxophones, pianists and other more unusual instruments in the past such as a Chinese Guzheng. The Festival also welcomes ensembles from the AcaPelicans, school orchestras, and a rousing finale performance by the PMHS jazz band.

To Register and/or donate online go to; you can also email if you have any questions or review our FAQ page.

Registration fees only cover a portion of expenses. Each year, the Festival makes an effort to provide scholarships to students wishing to participate for whom the fee is an obstacle. We offer subsequent performance dates to share music at local nursing homes and health care facilities and for which students earn service hours.
