Careers in the making

Since 1988 lessons and master classes in combination with stage experience form the core of The International Holland Music Sessions (TIHMS).
During the Summer Academy a new generation of soloists is intensively supervised and coached by internationally renowned musicians and pedagogues. The classes, together with the public concerts taking place during the Summer Academy, may be the first step toward an invitation to perform in prestigious concert halls in the Netherlands as well as around the world.

New Masters on Tour 2015-2016

During the concert season 2015-2016 we offer our new New Masters on Tour series with five concerts. These concerts will take place in Amsterdam (Concertgebouw) and will be repeated in Zwolle (Schouwburg Odeon).
We selected great young musicians for you again!

Over a hundred concerts and masterclasses

A large number of concerts are planned in the summer period in which young musicians from all over the world will perform. The centre of the concerts is Bergen NH (Ruïnekerk) and Alkmaar (Remonstrantse Kerk), but concerts are organised in various other cities in the Netherlands.

Masterclasses take place in the afternoon in the Remonstrantse Kerk in Alkmaar. This gives you the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the education, or coaching, of young talented musicians by a world famous faculty, often prominent musicians on the concert stage themselves.

All details can be found in concerts.
