“Come to Kronberg”: registration open for 2021 Violin Masterclasses – Ambitious violinists can apply to take part now

Kronberg Academy is inviting all ambitious violinists to apply to take part in the 7th edition of the “Violin Masterclasses & Concerts” 2021. Gifted violinists aged 28 and below have from 1 February to 13 April to register. Kronberg Academy organises the Violin Masterclasses in Kronberg every two years, thereby creating a unique opportunity for talented young musicians to learn from the world’s very best artists.

This year’s tutors for the Violin Masterclasses & Concerts are world renowned professors Ana Chumachenco, Mihaela Martin and Pavel Vernikov. Selected violinists will have the opportunity to meet these outstanding musicians as masterclass students and audience members in their masterclasses from 13 to 21 June. Three sponsorship awards will be presented to carefully chosen participants during the closing concert at the end of the masterclasses week. Talks, workshops and a specialist exhibition of luthiers, bow makers and strings manufacturers all run in parallel to the Violin Masterclasses & Concerts. The event will once again be an occasion for collaboration between Kronberg Academy and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. This will provide the young violinists with a unique opportunity to perform with an orchestra, as well as receiving masterclass tuition.

The 7th Violin Masterclasses & Concerts is taking place with generous financial support from Deutsche Bank Stiftung. It will be a live event held under strict hygiene regulations. Kronberg Academy has a far-reaching hygiene policy that will ensure comprehensive protection for students, tutors and audience members alike.
