Wondering if you'd have a good time at Conclave? Afraid you won't know anybody? Nervous about what others will think of your playing? Afraid you're not good enough.... or maybe too advanced to get anything out of it?

Take a look at what some Conclavers have said about their experiences: young players who made new friends, colleagues, and connections; retired people who have found a welcoming, inspiring community; professionals who come back year after year; people of all ages and levels who can't wait for next summer to come around so they can make music at Conclave.
