Our Festival Performances
For young people, Usdan is an invitation to create, to collaborate, to explore, to be wonder-filled, and to be part of a special community. For our families, artist teachers, friends, and patrons, our calendar is an invitation to visit Usdan and to experience the impact and see the growth that results. Each camper’s personal experience takes on even more meaning in the context of performances through Usdan’s daily series of Festival Performances, presented by campers in many disciplines as well as distinguished artists from around the world.
