The International Summer Academy Biel promotes particularly talented music students as well as young instrumentalists and singers from all over the world in annual master classes held in July.
The lecturers are all internationally renowned personalities who hold professorships at Swiss or foreign universities. A special feature of the Summer Academy Biel is the participation of a professional orchestra. Students are thus offered the unique opportunity to rehearse and perform as soloists with orchestral accompaniment.
The Masterclasses are accompanied by concerts of the lecturers, final concerts of the Masterclasses and orchestra concerts with soloists from the Masterclasses.
A participant of the International Summer Academy will perform a work with orchestra at the traditional New Year's Concert of the TOBS with the Symphony Orchestra Biel Solothurn SOBS on Sunday, January 5, 2020 in Solothurn and Biel.
