Founded in 1977 by Kurt Pahlen at Lenk, Switzerland, the International Summer Academy has been taking place since 2017 in the wonderful ambience of the Benedictine monastery in Ettal.

After a very successful first year of the International Summer Academy Ettal, the annual masterclasses with internationally renowned professors will again take place in the breathtaking scenery of the Ammergau Alps between August 19th and September 01st.

Part of the tradition-rich summer academy is the Summer Festival, which has been established for many years. Of course, fulminant concerts at the highest level will flank the summer academy again this year.

The masterclasses of the Summer Academy are public and free for listeners. Here, all those interested as guest auditors are offered insights into the daily musical work. The exact lesson times can be requested on site.

From the work of the master classes grow our academy concerts, which take place daily. Experience our highly talented young musicians live on stage. The programs are available at short notice as part of the lesson.

Visit the lessons of the master classes during the day and see the fruits of this work in the evening at the academy concert. Follow the development of both the students and the composition during the master class and the implementation on stage.

It is the symbiosis of academy and concert offerings that provides fertile ground for the students' musical development and offers concertgoers and classical music lovers a concert experience at the highest level.

The International Summer Academy Ettal will be held from August 20th – September 02nd 2017. Deadline for your application is June 30th 2017.

Over the last 39 years, the International Summer Academy of Music can look back on an impressing portfolio of renowned Professors and young talents. Teachers such as Sándor Végh, Thomas Demenga or Eduard Brunner greatly contributed to the development of the Summer Academy. Still today, internationally popular musicians such as Ana Chumachenco, Nora Chastain, Troels Svane or Adrian Oetiker are doing a committed and affectionate work in teaching talented young artists. The musical abilities of musicians like Julia Fischer, Lisa Batiashvili but also of our today’s teachers Adrian Oetiker, Nora Chastain and Adelina Oprean have been perfected during the Academy. They experienced here the meaning of worth, beauty an depth of music.

In 1977, Prof . Dr. Kurt Pahlen provided the fundamental idea of the Academy as he gathered some great musicions like Sándor Végh, Peter Lukas Graf and the singer Sena Jurinac to form the first faculty and realised the first Academy with sixty students from all over the world.

In the occasion of our 40th anniversary, the International Summer Academy of Music will take place in the Benedictine cloister of Ettal for the first time in 2017.
