Baroque music workshop: For the 40th edition of the International Summer Academy, we would like to offer students the additional opportunity to perform baroque concerti as soloists* with a specialist ensemble. With the participation of musicians from the Orchestre des Lumières, we allow interested students to have special access to baroque music by rehearsing one day with professional baroque musicians, with modern instruments, benefiting from their experience and techniques and playing a public concert together.

Masterclasses for violin, cello, flute, trumpet and piano


The International Summer Academy Biel promotes particularly talented music students as well as young instrumentalists 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.
