Encuentro de Santander

The 18th Santander Encounter of Music and Academia, Cantabria 2018, will take place in July. Like in the previous editions, and as its name suggests, the Encounter tightly combines the academic and the artistic activities.
The Academy will take place at the facilities of the Jesús de Monasterio Professional Music Conservatory in Santander. There, 14 internationally famous maestros will live for almost a month with over 60 young musicians from all over the world.
This year there will be violin, viola, cello, flute, oboe, bassoon, horn, trumpet, singing, and piano master classes, with a particular focus on chamber music. There will also be intense training of contemporary music ensembles, chamber music orchestra, and symphony orchestra.
