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


Students from around the world will work closely with Credo’s artist-teachers and several guest quartets in an atmosphere of meaningful mentorship. In 2020 Credo innovates on this highly successful format by including an instrumental focus week, focusing on the great chamber works of Beethoven.


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.


Messiah Sing-Along: every December

Credo’s Sing-Along Messiah at Oberlin Conservatory is a highlight of the Christmas season in Northeast Ohio. Exceptional soloists from Oberlin Conservatory join with Credo alumni (the orchestra) for an unforgettable experience in historic Finney Chapel.

This year’s Messiah will take place December 15, with proceeds supporting a homeless shelter for families. Click below to view details and practice your part in advance!
