Harrison House Music, Arts & Ecology is a residency and performance program for international artists and thinkers based in the late composer Lou Harrison’s desert retreat in Joshua Tree, California. It awards great minds with the time to create and share their very best work in an historic and inspiring setting.

Tucked away in the vast desert landscape near the border of Joshua Tree National Park, the majestic composers’ cave Harrison built for himself and his friends inspires artists and audiences though this innovative program.

A non-profit project of San Francisco Study Center. Residencies are currently by invitation only. We welcome your questions, and hearing from our community of patrons and volunteers.
