Do join us for our 33rd Year. Since 1982 people have come from all over the world to enjoy our classical music vacations with like minded people. Come alone, as a couple or with a group of friends. Come to listen or to enjoy playing chamber music with people from all over the world, ideal for professional as well as good amateur players. While string players are in the majority, we welcome a limited number of wind players. Pre-formed quartets or individuals are all welcome. Players have ample opportunities for rehearsing and being coached, while listeners absorb the musical atmosphere and gain a greater understanding of music. A unique feature of these Holiday Festivals is that the coaches, members of world famous chamber music ensembles, play with the groups they are coaching. Outstanding concerts and operas are in superb venues. Accommodation is in charming hotels with all modern amenities and WiFi with meals in gourmet restaurants, local taverns and historic places with a sociable, informal atmosphere. Extensive sightseeing with visits to places of musical and historic interest and scheduled chamber music playing with coaching by world famous musicians in Budapest, Vienna and Corfu, all make Chamber Music Holidays a unique experience. Ideal Holidays for players and listeners meeting like minded people in interesting places. (The photos on this page were taken in various places on our Chamber Music Holidays.)
