TIHMS Summer Academy 2013
The Summer Academy forms the core of The International Holland Music Sessions. Over a hundred concerts, in which the active participants perform are combined with lessons and masterclasses by a renowned faculty of teachers from important musical institutes all over the world. This takes place each summer during a period of three weeks (July 28 - August 18).
Solo program for:
Internationally renowned musicians and pedagogues will give individual lessons and public master classes (free choice of repertoire).
Each solo class will consist of a maximum of 15 active participants.
Participants may use studios and pianos free of charge depending on availability. The system of daily reservation will be explained at arrival. We try to lodge piano participants with host families with an instrument to be used for practising.
(Violinists: pay attention, by mistake we exchanged Rissin and Wegrzyn when we put the information on the website on April 18, we corrected this on April 22: what you see below is correct.)

LOCATIONS SUMMER ACADEMY 2013
The International Holland Music Sessions (founded in 1988) has concentrated most of the venues for the lessons, master classes and concerts right in the centre of the beautiful historic village of Bergen NH, situated only a short distance from the North Sea beaches.
Lessons and master classes will be given at the Berger Scholengemeenschap, a comfortable and modern High School on the edge of the woods of Bergen NH. This will also be the location were lunches will be provided for all participants.
Dinner will be provided in the Parkhotel in Bergen NH.
Concerts will take place at the Ruïnekerk, while public master classes will be given at the Remonstrantse Kerk, Alkmaar. (Museum Kranenburgh is not available due to renovation.)
As the organisation provides all participants with bed and breakfast at the host family without extra charge, the Summer Academy offers therefore a complete package of lessons, master classes, housing and meals included in the total fee.
Host families are friends of THIMS who voluntarily offer their hospitality to the participants. Lunch and dinner is provided from Monday till Saturday and on Sunday it can be shared with the host family.
