The Sulzbach-Rosenberg International Music Festival (also referred to by the abbreviation, SRIMF, by locals) has been around for 12 years. In addition to the intensity of InterHarmony in musical studies for aspiring musicians, the people of Sulzbach-Rosenberg and their enthusiasm for classical music and the festival are what make this session of InterHarmony so unique. It is extremely easy to get from Acqui Terme, Italy (Session II) to Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany (Session III). More information can be found here:

The ambience is not just the hardy German cuisine or European splendor, but the people who are so welcoming to the participants of SRIMF and to their music. Concerts are typically packed, with an average of 800 people in the Final Orchestra Concert each year. The newspapers are very active in writing about the festival and getting the word out there about concerts and stories about individuals performing at the festival from around the globe. Sulzbach-Rosenberg is home to a castle dating from 900 AD, which was later home to Emperor Karl IV, and has now become the SMS music school and police department. There are many other Medieval sights in this safe town, and a police academy where 1500 policeman study to become officers. The cultural integration and Medieval setting are what makes SRIMF a prime experience for musical learning and growth.
InterHarmony International Music Festival invites you to study with its internationally renowned faculty of soloists and chamber musicians for up to six weeks of string, piano, woodwind, brass, percussion, or vocal instruction in one of its gorgeous European settings. IIMF's piano and string professors bring together decades of pedagogical and performance experience, offering an international outlook with an edge honed in the famous Russian school. The woodwind, brass, and percussion tracks combine unique chamber music opportunities and starring orchestral roles, while the vocalists can specialize in either art song or opera. All students will enjoy a life-changing opportunity to develop their musical abilities, grow artistically, network with fellow musicians and perform in concert. Through our Outstanding Guest Artist Series, participants will be brought together with some of classical music's brightest lights. Past guests include Vadim Repin and Alfred Brendel.
