Dear Visitor,


From July 28 - August 11, 2014 will be the 11th year of Crescendo's two-week mastercourse, this year in Tokaj, Hungary. We had to make this decision to move the Institute from Sárospatak in order to maintain the possible success and approppriate venue for this mastercourse. Because we have lost the major accommodation and studying places in Sárospatak due to unpredictible reconstruction works, we could not have guaranteed the needed atmosphere. We are convinced, that Tokaj will be a perfect location.

The Crescendo Summer Institute provides an excellent opportunity for concentrated work in the performing arts and provides assistance in preparation for exams and auditions. Excellent soloists and members of leading European and American orchestras teach the Crescendo Summer Institute's mastercourses to intermediate and advanced arts students that join us from more than 25 countries.

The Crescendo Summer Institute is a great opportunity for young people preparing for or considering a career in the arts to study alongside seasoned professional artists in a Christian environment. In addition to courses and private lessons with outstanding teachers, students will have the possibility of participating in « Tune In » morning meetings, small group discussions about the topic « dare to live », Sunday church services, etc. The course is open to all qualified young musicians regardless of their faith persuasion, and participation in the religious elements of the course is optional.

On the last four festive days of the Institute, during the Crescendo Festival, a series of concerts are given by our faculty and the best students. Orchestra and chamber concerts, theater performances, lectures and exhibitions are open to the local public and guests visiting Tokaj.

We look forward to meeting you at the Crescendo Summer Institute 2014 in Hungary this summer!

Application deadline June 15, 2014!
