Voices of summer

AIMS in Graz 2017

This year the American Institute of Musical Studies will return to Graz for its 46th summer. About 100 international singers and pianists as well as the AIMS festival orchestra, faculty and staff of the summer school will stay in our city for six weeks in July and August. They will sing, they will study, they will rehearse, and they will perform for you.

As well as enjoying the high quality orchestra concerts of the Voices of Summer series in renowned locations such as Stefaniensaal, Kasematten and Helmut-List-Halle, you can explore a different range of repertoire – from Spanish zarzuelas to the German Lied – in many smaller concert venues.

You can also take advantage of the unique chance of following young singers’ journeys: visit their practice evenings – the Monday night concerts in St Leonhard –, see them develop their skills in Master Classes with famous artists like Barbara Bonney and Deborah Voigt, and watch them in all three rounds of the Meistersinger Competition (July 29 and 30; August 10).
