VIENNA PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Summer Music Performance program is designed for Music majors or minors, or for students who have had significant previous music instruction. During the 5-week summer program, students enroll in a music history course that takes advantage of the rich cultural opportunities that Vienna and Austria offer – from touring composers’ homes, attending countless performances, visiting a workshop for historical instrument repair, to a weekend trip to Salzburg. Students also take a specially designed Beginning German language course for music majors, concentrating on diction and other music language proficiency requirements. In addition, students have the opportunity to take private music lessons from professional musicians (1 lesson per week, up to a limited stipend is included in the program fee), and to work together in small ensembles or as individuals to create a final performance open to the public.
