Platform of European Summer Music Academy in Kosovo
Gjakova / Mitrovica 2018
The European Summer Music Academy (ESMA) in Kosovo is a project that intends to exchange the best knowledge and experiences among music professors, students and artists from the Western and South Eastern Europe. This project encourages students and professors from different countries of the region to get together and make music together.
The students participants in the ESMA have the opportunity to attend masterclasses and work as well with well-known musicians, performers or/and academics.
The European Summer Music Academy 2018 will take place in the cities of Gjakova and Mitrovica, in the most cultural cities of Kosovo, from August 22 to 31 2018.
Our focus for this year will be once again on further artistic, solo and chamber music education of the participants and also on successful collaborations among various groups of students, guest professors and artistic programs.
The participation on the chamber music masterclasses depends on the availability and also on the participants’ previous chamber music experiences.
During the ESMA 2018 days young musicians form Kosovo and abroad can attend masterclasses for singing, piano, violin, viola, flute, oboe, trumpet, percussion, composition, guitar, orchestral conducting, and also masterclasses for chamber music for strings/piano, woodwinds and brass ensembles.
The official language of ESMA is English; hence, all students should have a good ability of understanding and speaking English.
