Aquarell: Bad Leonfelden

The Internationale Sommerakademie Bad Leonfelden is held in Bad Leonfelden, a charming little town in the Mühlviertel, a beautiful area in Upper-Austria. It is approximately 30 km from Linz, easily reachable from both Vienna and Salzburg.

The master classes take place in a relaxed but focused atmosphere. Active participants will receive at least 3 x 60 min or 4x 45 min individual master classes. Half active participants will get at least 2 x 45 min individual master classes. Pieces that need to be accompanied by a pianist must be perfectly prepared as there is very limited time for rehearsals with the pianists. All participants have free entry to all master classes and concerts.

Finally, free seminars, lectures, Qi Gong as well as rhythm, breathing and voice training will be offered.

"It was in every respect a delightful time in this splendid atmosphere connecting people, nature and music. Many thanks!"
