The Harpa International Music Academy is a unique summer festival in the northernmost capital of the world, an international platform with an equal focus on training and performance.

" event of truly international significance...." "....highly valuable summer-school." praised by Hilary Finch a former senior music critic of The Times, London, this year we celebrate the seventh anniversary of the Harpa International Music Academy. 

The Academy has thrived on the strength of its international partnerships. This year we are glad to introduce our new partners from the New Music for Strings in Denmark, Point Counterpoint in Vermont and The Atlanta Festival Academy in Atlanta, Georgia, in the USA. All our partners share a common goal, nurturing the education of young and talented music students and serving as a platform for international cooperation.

The participants from Sibbi´s Intensive String Quartet seminar will present their string quartet works at the opening concert, followed by a series of concerts played by faculty members, students and young artists in residence including Diana Adamyan, the winner of the 2018 Menuhin Competition. We will conclude the course with a final festival concert headlined by a grand string orchestra directed and coached by an internationally acclaimed violinist, Eugene Drucker, a founding member of the Emerson String Quartet.

I look forward to seeing you all.
