InterHarmony 15th Anniversary Under the Piemontese Sun

In celebration of its fifteenth year providing young musicians from around the world with unique educational experiences in unforgettable locations, the InterHarmony® International Music Festival is proud to announce a new site: Acqui Terme, Italy. Both July sessions will take place in the northern Italian town, whose history stretches back to before ancient Rome, followed by a third session in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany. For more information about the new location, along with regular updates on new teachers and guest artists, visit http://www.interharmony.com/italy.

Drawn to Acqui Terme by its rich history, gorgeous scenery and vibrant cultural life, festival founder Misha Quint is thrilled with the move: “I think even people who know our festivals well will be surprised by what we're planning.” First and foremost on his mind: “Location, location, location.” Famous since the days of Roman antiquity for its hot springs and set in the midst of one of Italy’s most picturesque wine-growing regions, Acqui Terme offers visitors an abundance of possibilities. The sounds of newly-installed pianos can already be heard from the concert halls of the Basilica di San Pietro and the Hotel La Meridiana, the imposing medieval Paleologi Castle, and the town's schools. Participants will also be able to explore the Piedmont region, legendary for its sumptuous, French-inspired cuisine and award-wining vineyards, on two excursions. Both sessions will tour the cosmopolis and cathedral town of Milan, and Session I will visit the World Heritage pilgrimage site of Turin, while Session II travels to the nearby cultural center and seaport of Genova. Yet Quint warns that only one thing can get applicants there: “Practice, practice, practice!”

InterHarmony® has organized dozens of successful music festivals in its fifteen year history in the USA and Europe. This summer, InterHarmony® invites music students of all ages from across the globe to three two-week long sessions in stunning locales. Session I (July 5-17) and Session II (July 18-30) will take place in Acqui Terme, followed by a third session (August 1-13) in its original location in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany. Each festival offers the opportunity not only to study privately with world-class musicians, but also to participate in chamber and orchestral ensembles and to perform with talented peers. Scenic accommodations, delicious food and plenty of practice time are included.
