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.

tihms musiciansSummer Academy 2017

"TIHMS, one of the finest musical courses in the world"

August 6 until August 27, 2017

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 later years, later competitions and later 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 2017 started January 7, 2017. You are welcome! Details are to be found in Summer Academy.

Over a hundred concerts and masterclasses

A large number of concerts are planned in the summer period of 2017 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 will be available in concerts.

- Durchaus fantastisch und leidenschaftlich vorzutragen; Im Legenden Ton
- Mässig. Durchaus energisch
- Langsam getragen. Durchweg leise zu halten
Aleksandr Skrjabin (1872-1915): Sonate nr. 5 in Fis opus 53

Amarins Wierdsma
De Nederlandse violiste Amarins Wierdsma is het zoveelste bewijs van het succes van de Nederlandse vioolschool. Wierdsma kwam als geboren soliste tot bloei bij de Fancy Fiddlers en studeert nu in Londen bij David Takeno die ook Liza Ferschtman de weg wees. Ondertussen bewijst Wierdsma met een progamma met sonates van Beethoven en Ravel dat ze inderdaad een begenadigd soliste is.

Wai Yin Wong
Ook de in Hong Kong geboren pianiste Wai Yin Wong is een geboren soliste. Net als Wierdsma was ze er al vroeg bij. Zo gauw ze op de pianokruk kon klimmen was de piano het doel van Wai Yin Wong. Ook zij stroomde via erkende jeugdopleidingen door naar het conservatorium. Tegenwoordig studeert ze aan het prestigieuze Yale bij Boris Berman. Met Schumanns prachtige Fantasie op. 17 en de 5e Pianosonate van Skrjabin brengt ze een interessant programma tot klinken.
