Two months every year of fabulous music in gorgeous venues! The price is right. Many master classes and performances are $10. Kids are free. Sit in on a master class. You will never think of classical music in quite the same way. Magical!

Tremendous amount of high quality performances
Aug 2017
The gathering of talented students and outstanding faculty is bound to produce some terrific concerts. But there is so much more here - the many masterclasses are worth attending. One gets to see the future here and the future looks bright.

Beautiful setting
May 2017 • Couples
Had the opportunity to attend an event here and although it was in one of the private areas, there was no missing the beauty of this elegant music academy. There was music performed during the dinner portion of our event, and the acoustics were perfect so that everyone was enchanted by the programme. Gorgeous outdoor as well as indoors, and not hard to understand how young musicians are inspired in this setting.

Lovely concert series plus

Wonderful venue for instrumental concerts, opera, and master class observations. Summer offers the full option of programs. It's exciting to witness such great artists embarking on promising careers.

Fantastic opportunity!
Jul 2016
This event is one of the best opportunities to enjoy classical music in an informal and relaxed environment that one can ever have. The tickets for master classes are either cheap or free. And the fellows (students) are unbelievably talented. What a bargain for music lovers.

Master Classes - and more
Jul 2015 • Couples
the music events are wonderful. If you have a chance, attend a master class. The teachers are superb and the comments that they give the students are insightful. You can hear the difference in their playing before and after critiques - well worth the experience

Hahn is Simply Marvelous
Nov 2014 • Family
We were so blessed to attend a concert at the Hahn, on the graceful, picturesque grounds of the Music Academy of the West. The Danish quartet which performed were unmatched anywhere we have ever attended. It was an experience like no other.

Master classes, always learn something new
Aug 2014 • Friends
Free master classes you can attend are excellent. They always have good teachers and wonderful student players. In the evening they have concerts which require a ticket but are always excellent.

a top notch competition and musical venue
Jul 2014 • Friends
this academy has been around for a lot of years offering summer residnecy programs for solo instruments, vocal, and orchesta and provides not only competitions but master classes with well reknowned artists. The vocal competition under the aegis of Marilyn Horne is fabulous. This is a wonderful way to spend a day including bringing a picnic lunch to enjoy in gorgeous parklike surroundngs during the break between the morning and afternoon competiiton. the prices are reasonable and i suggest you order your tickets well in advance or the events will be sold out.
