Propelled by music
Never before have you heard music here - the international Kronberg Festival will form the grand opening for our Casals Forum. As a new venue in the Rhine-Main region, the Casals Forum will be a place for people to come together, with and through music. Music is life!
A musical firework display and a feast for everyone who loves the violin, viola and cello. At the Kronberg Festival there is no getting away from what Kronberg Academy stands for: inspiration, fascination, world stars and leading young musicians. World-renowned artists on the string scene will perform both as soloists and in chamber ensembles, and will introduce talented young musicians in joint concerts. Students from across the world will receive tuition at the public Cello Masterclasses taking place in parallel to the Festival. The experience will be complemented by exhibitions, talks and the international violin making exhibition VioViva.
