From 16 June to 24 June


Auditorium Manuel de Falla





NEW DEADLINE: APRIL 29th at 6 pm


Vocal and instrumental academy devoted to the repertoire of early Baroque. In its third edition, contents of the Academy will be focused on instrumental music from the 18 th century. Participants will work on the most important musical forms and the way to confront a work, from pure technical perspective to the most theatrical and affective view.

Activity will comprise classes, rehearsals and two concerts in the framework of  the 71st International Festival of Music and Dance of Granada.



Students in their last years of musical training at High conservatories and Music Schools, students of master’s degree in music performance, newly graduates who want to enrich their musical experience and performance opportunities.

Participants will be selected by the teaching staff (their decission will be final) and will have to bring to the course the scores perfectly studied, in order during the classes and rehearsals to put the final touches on the works.
