Accademia Vicino is the newly founded orchestra academy in Accumoli, which gives talented young professional musicians the opportunity to gain in-depth experience in orchestral playing under the guidance of experienced teachers.
In the course of this intensive orchestral training, the Summer Academy participants develop a repertoire of orchestral works that will be performed in five concerts. In addition to the musical instruction, Danube University Krems supplements the range of courses with workshops and lectures on music management, self-management, copyright and marketing.
Musicians aged 18 and over who are at an advanced stage of training or who are already working as professional musicians are entitled to participate in the Summer Academy. The lecturers review the qualifications and select the candidates by means of an online audition. Each participant recieves a scholarship, which includes the cost of training and accommodation with half board.
Accumoli Music Festival
The small community of Accumoli will host a very special music festival from the 21st to the 28th of August 2021.
On the initiative of Danube University Krems, an international Summer Academy for orchestral musicians was founded as part of a reconstruction program for Accumoli, which was so badly hit by the earthquakes in 2016 and 2017. The Summer Academy's orchestra, together with musicians from the Vienna Philharmonic and local music ensembles, will perform a series of concerts in and around Accumoli. From Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Waltz King Johann Strauss to Ennio Morricone, the journey leads through the world of music. The public is cordially invited to enjoy the performances with free entry in a casual atmosphere and to celebrate a festival of confidence, togetherness and solidarity in Accumoli.
