Welcome to the Harpa International Music Academy!

Our 2016 session starts with an intensive string quartet seminar with Sibbi Bernhardsson of the Pacifica String Quartet from June 3 - 8. The full Academy then swings into action, offering 10 days (June 8 - 17) of private lessons, chamber music, Masterclases, orchestra, social events and concerts at Harpa Concert Hall. We now offer instruction on wind instruments, as well as strings and piano. The festival ends on June 17th with a performance of Beethoven's 7th Symphony and Paganini's Violin Concerto no. 1, featuring young violin soloist Kevin Zhu and Finnish conductor Tomas Djupsjöbacka.
