6th International Music Festival and Masterclasses

The "Musikinsel Rheinau" (music island) in Switzerland opened its doors in May 2014. YOUTH CLASSICS was one of the first groups to use the premises of this inspiring island with its 5th International Music Festival and Masterclasses.

The festival is intended for advanced students who intend to study music and students already on the university level. The subject matter of the lessons includes technical basics, the interpretation of works, and/or preparation for competitions, exams, and auditions. The participants should be challenged musically and personally in an atmosphere of intense work.

The festival will be accompanied by a fantastic faculty. Just meeting these extraordinary musicians will make the course unforgettable for the participants.

Additional to the individual lessons (solo and chamber music courses), some days will be supplemented by interesting workshops and concerts for the students as a nice change to the lessons.
Public concerts by participants are an important component of the course. The concerts will be held at the music island, but also in other locations, to which the participants will travel together. These concerts can be a „dress rehearsal“ for important exams, competitions or auditions. We would like to give as many participants as possible the opportunity to give public concerts. In addition, internationally renowned artits will perform at the festival.

The YOUTH CLASSICS Gala Concert 2015 will be held in the end of November and is the final concert from the 6th International Music Festival and Masterclasses 2015. This concert is especially dedicated to the generous benefactors and sponsors of YOUTH CLASSICS. We are deeply grateful for their great support, without which the festival and concerts of YOUTH CLASSICS would not be possible.
