The International Music Festival of the Adriatic (IMFA) is a chamber music festival for strings (violin, viola, cello), piano, voice, and composition. Designed for pianists and string players ages 15–25, and singers and composers ages 18-25, the program focuses on individual training and chamber music with private lessons, coachings, master classes, and performances. All students will experience three-and-a-half weeks of collaborative music making with musicians from around the world at the inspirational setting of the United World College of the Adriatic in Duino, Italy.
