International Music Institute and Festival USA
The Intermuse International Music Institute and Festival (IIMIF) has been lauded as an exceptional program for the artistic, technical, and personal development of young musicians. Since 2003, students from across the United States and around the world have come to IIMIF to work closely with renowned performers and teachers for an intensive solo and chamber music experience. The supportive and challenging atmosphere of the program, limited enrollment (up to 30 participants), and variety of interdisciplinary activities have served as catalyst in the growth of young musicians. Former participants have credited this program with their successful careers in music.
The program is geared towards advanced, performance-geared young artists ages 15-26. Our dynamic summer music festival - held on the beautiful grounds of Mount Saint Mary\'s University - is filled with private lessons, chamber music, interdisciplinary arts experiences, and workshops on topics including practicing, improvisation, and musical careers. Enrollment is limited, facilitating an intense musical experience as well as lasting friendships. World-class faculty include such renowned musicians as Jonathan Carney (concertmaster of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra), Brian Ganz (faculty at Peabody Conservatory, winner of Silver Medal at Queen Elizabeth Competition), Chin Kim (faculty at Mannes School of Music, winner of Silver Medal at Queen Elizabeth Competition), Blanka Bednarz (faculty at Dickinson College), Lura Johnson (pianist for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra), and many others dedicated to assisting the next generation of musicians achieve their musical and personal goals. IMIF is exceptionally international: each year we welcome young musicians from around the world. Recent participants have joined us from Iceland, Estonia, Norway, Germany, Russia, Israel, Mexico, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Argentina, and Canada (as well as across the USA).
