Summer Academy 2016
"TIHMS, one of the finest musical courses in the world"
July 31 - August 21, 2016
Are you a musician? Playing the piano, the violin or the cello? Are you talented?
Do you think you can match with the musicians, shown on our facebook page in video? Do you have high aspirations, and do you realize that international experience abroad, in teaching and in performing, will increase your chances in that beautiful but alltogether difficult world of music performance?
Next to that, do you know that, due to the formula we chose: staying in a friendly host-family during the course, enjoying the meals and teaching-experiences together with musical soul mates, and the benefit of teachers that are far beyond 'good', the International Holland Music Sessions is an experience you will never forget?
It may give a boost to a future career, provide you with lots of musical experiences that formes a base also in latter years, latter competitions and latter concerts. You will perform in one of our many Summer Concerts, or even more than one. If you are really talented, you may be the one playing in one of the finest music halls in the world: The Concertgebouw Amsterdam. We scout talent, our international faculty will scout your talent.
It's worth it! Application for the International Holland Music Summer Academy 2016 has started December 2015. You are welcome! Details are to be found in Summer Academy.
The three core weeks (lessons) of the Summer Academy are from Sunday July 31 until Sunday August 21. The concerts start a week earlier, Sunday July 24, and end a week later, Sunday August 28.
Over a hundred concerts and masterclasses
A large number of concerts are planned in the summer period of 2016 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.
When the programming is ready (about May 2016) all details will be available in concerts.
