August 17 - 31, 2019

Welcome to Zeist!


This year’s festival will be a festive one, as the Zeist Music Days celebrates its 30thanniversary. Over these years more than 700 students from around the world took part in the festival’s masterclasses. Every year in August Zeist becomes a unique meeting place for talented international students, renowned string quartets, famous soloists and distinguished teachers.


As always, these two weeks offer an extraordinary combination of working together intensively on chamber music at various levels, enjoying the beautiful nature of Soesterberg and making new friends and memories. Young talented musicians learn from the best during this masterclass’ daily program. On top you will have the opportunity to visit all festival concerts. A student concert tour, adding to your experience as a performer, is part and parcel of the masterclass program.


This year your teachers will be:

Meet these fantastic musicians in Zeist between August 17 and August 31.


I look forward to your application and hope to meet you in Zeist.


Alexander Pavlovsky, Artistic Director
