Orfeo Music Festival, in our previous editions Schlern International Music Festival, is one of the premier European classical music festivals, and is set in majestic Italian Alps. The festival offers its participants one of the most enriching and exciting creative and educational experiences available. It is set apart from other summer programs by its unique combination of presenting some of the best international classic music performers in concerts and opportunity for students to study with some of the finest musicians and participate in the intense concert schedule. This helps prepare students for the life of professional musician or simply lets them indulge for a short time into ultimate music making atmosphere. All students arrive to a fairy-tale Alpine surroundings to live, breath and sleep music for nearly three weeks. The festival experience is highly personalized, inspirational and is intended to expand students’ professional confidence.
