From François Kloc, President and CEO of Buffet Crampon USA:

In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, I have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Buffet Crampon Clarinet Summer Academy.

This decision was made based on the current situation and the fact that more and more States are now asking their residents to stay home.

The health of our Artist faculty, students and staff are very important to me and I do not want to take any chances. The decision to cancel the 2020 Academy is disappointing, of course, but I am sure everyone understands the importance of social distancing during these unprecedented times.

Students that have already submitted application/audition materials may either request a refund of the application fee, or apply it to application for the 2021 Academy. Please contact Magali Tricoche for more information at

On behalf of my teams in Jacksonville, Florida and Maynard, Massachusetts, I wish you all good health as we move forward and thank you for your patience and understanding. #WeAreBuffet


The mission of the Buffet Crampon USA 2020 Summer Clarinet Academy is to offer an outstanding summer educational clarinet seminar to talented students. The student/teacher ratio will be 4:1. The low student teacher ratio will offer a unique opportunity for students to live and work closely with the internationally acclaimed Artist Faculty in a unique and intimate setting.
