18.07. – 01.08.2020

Presented every two years by Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt (IMD), the Darmstadt Summer Course is an international “hot spot” for contemporary and experimental musical practices and composition: it is summer academy, festival and discourse platform at the same time and a meeting point of over 400 composers, interpreters, performers, sound artists and scholars. Since 1946, the Darmstadt Summer Course has been aiming at bringing together strong musical and aesthetic positions, providing a framework for high-level performance and discourse, a lively international network and an inspiring experience for our participants and guests.

The next Darmstadt Summer Course will take place from 18 July to 1 August 2020, offering an intense program of courses, workshops, concerts, lectures, discussions and think tanks with around 60 tutors and many guests. Around 400 active participants from around 50 nations are expected. The public festival program & tickets will presumably be available end of April.

Online-registration (registration form, credit-card payment of participation fee) is now closed, except for participants who’ve been or will be accepted in current selection processes.

And for the following studios there are still a few places left: Accordion (Krassimir Sterev), Bassoon (Dafne Vicente-Sandoval), Brass (Marco Blaauw, Christine Chapman, Abbie Conant, Melvyn Poore), Harp (Gunnhildur Einarsdóttir), Oboe (Cathy Milliken) and Viola (Geneviève Strosser).

Conditions for Participation

⚠️ As the situation with Covid-19 changes from day to day worldwide, it is very difficult to predict how things will have developed by July. At the moment, we are intensely trying to check different solutions and are hoping to have more information for our participants by mid of April. Thank you for your understanding!
