VIP Academy 2017 & 9. Internationalen Rosario-Marciano-Klavierwettbewerb

VIP Academy (5-13 August 2017): More than a master class! An exclusive and diversified summer festival with intense artistic work and numerous concerts. 32 young pianists will receive a maximum of instruction in 5 individual lessons, one with each professor from our international faculty, and can perform at least in one student recital. A singing course for pianists, a city walk and a workshop about stage behaviour are also scheduled! For participants from outside of Vienna, there are free practice-rooms!

Vienna, the capital of Central European music, offers the perfect ambiance: The participants perform at Ehrbar Hall, one of Vienna’s most prestigious concert halls, where Johannes Brahms and Gustav Mahler once appeared, on a Bösendorfer 280 concert grand! In order to round off the program at VIP Academy, there is the opportunity to participate at an interesting excursion. For VIP Academy 2017 participants, there will be no registration fee at the 9th Rosario Marciano International Piano Competition (14-20 August 2017).
