September 3 – September 7, 2020
Application Deadline: August 25, 2020
For many young musicians, the summer is a time to concentrate more fully on one’s musical development while being part of a community of like-minded artists. With our own students’ summer plans canceled due to Covid-19, we began to dream of a new kind of summer festival in which students can grow and thrive. And thus the VVSA was born! The main aim of the VVSA is to bring together a positive and inspired global community of young musicians aged 8 – 29. The faculty of VVSA are committed to guiding each student to realizing the full potential of their unique musical voice.
Our curriculum takes a holistic approach to musical training. Intensive private lessons are supplemented by performance opportunities and career guidance. Furthermore, students will learn to heighten their physical awareness and endurance in order to achieve and sustain their peak performance ability. VVSA provides a glimpse into the lives and musical philosophies of today’s top concert artists and music industry leaders through a series of live masterclasses, interviews and workshops. We hope that our students leave the VVSA full of inspiration and motivation to continue their amazing music making and share it with the world.
We are looking forward to meeting you all in the Virtuosi Virtual Summer Academy!
