International Musicians Network (USA) announces the 2108 edition of “International Musicians” Academy in collaboration with Vidin Sinfonietta (Bulgaria). Taking place between August 5 – 18, 2018, the festival provides a unique opportunity for upcoming young artists to collaborate with a professional orchestra in rehearsals and concerts.
“International Musicians” Academy continues tradition of the Samuel Barber International Festival, founded in West Chester, Pennsylvania in 2006. The 2018 edition benefits from a stellar cast of American and European professors and the support of the Vidin Sinfonietta. The festival is designed to provide an ideal learning environment for aspiring soloists, professional orchestral conductors, and composers.
In 2017, the late Robert Gutter, invited his colleague and friend Ovidiu Marinescu to join the Vidin Artist Masterclasses. Maestro Gutter, founder of the The International Institute for Conductors, unexpectedly left us while touring in Moldavia later spring 2017. His legacy is continued in part by “International Musicians” Academy, in collaboration with Vidin Sinfonietta and Romanian manager Mihai Paun.
