Students must be 15 years of age to stay unaccompanied by an adult.  HCM provides adult supervision for students over the age of 15 staying at Hawthorne during the Festival dates.  Please e-mail mpatch@heartlandchambermusic.org to make your room reservation.  We will provide a roommate list a week before the Festival begins.

The cost per night, with taxes is $105.11.  If you opt to share a room with another student, you would each pay half, which comes to $52.56 a night or $525.55 the the entirety of the festival.  If you decide to have a room to yourself, the total would be double that.


The hotel does serve complimentary breakfast.  Other than that, students are responsible for their own meals.  The rooms do have a kitchenette and there is a grocery story only a block away.  Or, there are many restaurants within walking distance from the hotel and college.

Festival Scholars is a tuition-free opportunity for 8 highly-gifted musicians to receive intense chamber music coaching with the festival artistic director, Jackie Lee and guest artists Scott Lee and the Harlem Quartet. Scholars also perform live on Kansas Public Radio and are featured in their own performance on August 2nd in Yardley Hall
