August 17 - 31, 2019


The masterclasses are open to violin, viola or cello students and graduates from music academies all over the world. Applicants must register as members of an existing ensemble. This year there is also a limited number of places available for ensembles of strings and piano or one other additional instrument.

Entry fee

The entry fee is € 475 per person. This includes:

  • Two weeks of alternating masterclasses by:

  • Student concert tour with a final concert featuring all student ensembles at the festival’s main concert hall in Zeist

  • Tickets to all festival concerts

  • Accommodation, breakfast, lunch, and dinner


The Zeist Musicdays keeps the fee at an absolute minimum. However, some applicants may still feel they cannot pay the full amount. For those students the Friends of the Zeist Music Days Foundation has a very limited Scholarship Fund. To request a scholarship please send full background information (including arguments why you feel eligible for a scholarship) along with your application form. Requests sent in after we have received your application will not be taken into consideration.


Please download and complete the registration form.

NB All ensemble members must complete the form individually.
