Credo programs

Credo's programming is intentionally built upon our mission statement "Develop the Gift, Acknowledge the Source, Respond in Service". Credo's educational programs go beyond technical development, encouraging students to pursue personal excellence on par with their pursuit of instrument mastery. Credo also presents a variety of community-based programming year-round across the country.

Summer Programs


Celebrating 20 years of the Credo Program by honoring our two “homes” – Oberlin Conservatory and Chicago. Students from around the world work closely with leading artist-teachers in an atmosphere of meaningful mentorship.


Credo Flute offers the serious musician a training ground to develop artistic and professional skills as they study solo and orchestral repertoire, strategies in audition success, and keys to developing professional vision.
