Besides of these activities we will have daily concerts, where students will have a chance to perform in chamber music formations, as well as their solo repertoire. Also interaction with teachers is popular at IKMMA. This high amount of rehearsals and guided ensembles will help to make new friends and learn different approach then the common one. Styles are mixing in the positive way, usually with 32 students we have 14-18 different nationalities from allover the world. Languages, a lot of great information, exchange of experiences and friendship are most important during this summer festival full of music and joy.
