Whether you´ve been at the academy every summer for years or are considering making your “debut” – Summeracademy Voksenåsen will be something special!
The academy of 2017 has several news. Super flutist Emily Beynon and Melissa Phelbs, one of Englands finest and most popular cello professors, from Royal College of Music in London, will be joining the Summeracademy for the first time! Alf Richard Kraggerud will be visiting together with some of the most talented young string players in the Nordic countries, and we will be launching Summeracademy Harp with the popular professor of the Norwegian Academy of Music Isabelle Perrin. During the course she will be visited by her college at the Gothenburg Symphony Erik Groenestein-Hendriks.
2017, as in 2016, the course will be held over 5 days, with departure in the morning the 6th day. The string chamber-music course continues, led by the fantastic Tim Frederiksen. The queen of all Hornists, Frøydis Ree Wekre is back, as is Gregor Witt, Tine Thing Helseth, Susanna Eken – and the list goes on.
