14th Moritzburg Festival Academy: August 4 - 18, 2019

Launched in 2006, the Moritzburg Festival Academy under the direction of violinist Mira Wang enjoys a reputation as a place for excellence delivering focused musicality and inspirational creativity at their highest. Every year, young musicians from all over the world are chosen to participate in the Academy and form the international Moritzburg Festival Orchestra.


Alongside orchestral work, chamber music plays an important role at the Academy as well. Participants have the opportunity to work with internationally renowned conductors and established soloists to perform in several concerts on tour as well as within the Moritzburg Festival.

In addition, internationally renowned Moritzburg Festival Artists work on chamber music with the participants in daily rehearsals. The orchestral and chamber music programmes of the Moritzburg Festival Academy will be performed for a wide audience in concerts on tour and within the Moritzburg Festival.

Every participant - regardless of social or financial background - benefits from a full scholarship. Therefore, we're always looking for music enthusiasts who will contribute to this ambitious education programme by uniquely adopting one of the young talents.
