The core of the concert activities of The International Holland Music Sessions lies in the Summer Academy & Festival, organized each summer. Over a hundred concerts and also public master classes are organized; the musicians are those who participate in the Summer Academy lessons and master classes.
The venues are numerous. Just before and during the Summer Academy you will read all about this in the concerts section of this website.
The best musicians are selected for the New Masters on Tour series, appearing on stage in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Theater Odeon in Zwolle as well as other national and international concert venues. You will read everything about the New Masters on Tour on this dedicated page.
There are other concert series in which TIHMS participates. There is the Kunst10daagse, organized in Bergen NH each autumn. In addition to the public concerts, TIHMS organizes sponsored concerts throughout the Netherlands for an invited audience as well as children's concert projects for educational purposes. These (private) concerts are not listed in the concert diary.
These concerts offer opportunities for other instrumentalists and vocalists, different from the instrument choice of the Summer Academy (violin, cello, piano).
TRAVEL, HOUSING, FEE
For those musicians who are invited to perform in concerts outside the Summer Academy, The International Holland Music Sessions covers the costs of travel, housing, and fee, based on international standards for young professional musicians.
