The two-week festival will feature daily private lessons, master classes, performance classes, Sonata class, scale class and an evening lecture series on German composers and their contemporaries in literature, art and other topics.

Students will take part in select chamber music ensembles and all students will perform in at least one of two Young Artist concerts.
