Moritzburg Festival Academy: August 6 - 18, 2024


The Moritzburg Festival Academy under the artistic direction of violinist Mira Wang has been an integral part of the Moritzburg Festival since it was founded in 2006. In 2024, young and talented musicians from all over the world are invited again to take part in the Moritzburg Festival Academy. The selected participants will form the international Moritzburg Festival Orchestra under the direction of chief conductor Josep Caballé Domenech and the guidance of internationally renowned Festival soloists, who give an essential impulse to their artistic development in the idyllic setting of the Moritzburg Castle. Alongside orchestral work, all musicians have the opportunity to perform in different chamber music ensembles.


The application process for the Moritzburg Festival Academy 2024 is finished.
