Event DetailsJune 20, 2020 – July 31, 2020
Faced with the necessary isolation to ensure everyone’s health, with travel difficulties and restrictions, and the closure of our campus, rather than being defeated by Covid-19, Berkshire High Peaks Music Festival have decided to mount the festival virtually. The festival’s artistic director is Israeli musician Yehuda Hanani.
Each patron will be getting four private lessons over the course of the festival, participate in masterclasses by the festival faculty and guests, enjoy discussions by prominent composers, renowned pedagogues and public relations professionals who will look at the past, present and beyond the Coronavirus universe to chart what might be the course of classical music.
Yehuda Hanani, an AICF alumnus, is the artistic director of the festival which over the years has featured other AICF alumny such as Roman Rabinovich, Itamar Zorman, Hagai Shaham, Miriam Fried, Vadim Gluzman, Renana Gutman, the Ariel Quartet and many more. This year the festival will host a masterclass by another AICF alumnus viola virtuoso Atar Arad.
Hanani himself will be leading a master class – Venice and Leipzig—Vivaldi and J. S. Bach. The Festival will take place this summer in an online format.
