Learn & Perform with the Best
Dream stage, make it yours.
It has never been more difficult for young, aspiring musicians to find access to stage experience. Many musicians may find themselves struggling for years on end to get the education and the hands-on experience that they need to move forward with their professional music careers. The International Music Festival Zell am See is the solution that you have been looking for.
Any musician who truly wants to master the art of the violin playing should follow the paths of the best teachers and players. Here we find outstanding teachers. I recommend to my pupils to attend and learn everything they teach there.
I’m very glad to be able to participate in this year’s International Music Festival Zell am See! It’s an exciting opportunity for me, and I am looking forward to it.
Very unique program
Excited to participate
This is our major event where young violinists can work directly with professors and masters, even performing on stage as a soloist with an orchestra, something that most summer academies and even most master classes do not offer!
The highlight of the week will be the Gala Concert which will be held on September 14, 2019. At the gala concert some of our participants will perform as soloists together with the MAV Symphony Orchestra Budapest under the baton of Maestro Maxim Vengerov. Dream stage is open for all – make it yours.
There will be multiple public concerts held during the festival week at various locations in the town of Zell am See. As an active participant, you will get to perform publicly which will be an important training for your respective career. Practice like you’ve never won, perform like you’ve never lost.
