Letter from the Director
"A couple of hours away from Vienna, we encounter the beautiful countryside of Weyer, a picturesque Austrian village filled with history, fresh air and many shades of green which shall surround us as we make music. Let’s gather together from different parts of the earth and create music with young musicians who were strangers not so long ago. Passionate and heartfelt, our love of music will transcend the mountains and rivers of this magnificent place."
Director of the Chamber Music Academy
