Welcome to Thy Chamber Music Festival 2016
Young professionals and outstanding students will once again
join renowned artist teachers to perform great chamber music
repertoire together in concerts throughout Thy, Denmark.
Each piece from the repertoire will be played in two concerts, each person plays in six or more concerts. All participants in the Thy Chamber Music Festival will be in three or more chamber music groups performing together with the professors, and in groups with the other participants. Participants, from all over the world, are generally 20 to 35 years old.
The Thy Chamber Music Festival experience, with five hours of rehearsals each day plus concerts, is demanding and intense. But it is also decidedly informal and joyful, encouraging both personal and professional growth in a highly supportive environment.
Forests, sand dunes and scenic beaches, friendly volunteers, comfortable lodging and good food; our festival has joined an idealistic vision of music making and its community in ways that are as natural as they are remarkable. We look forward to having you with us in 2016!

"The Thy Chamber Music Festival is an amazing place full of tremendously positive energy, and with an ideal working atmosphere. Much special care is taken so that everything runs so well, smoothly, and everyone feels comfortable to be themselves. Fantastic young musicians work intensely with a great team of tutors in multiple groups ... and they are also happy to enjoy wonderful food and accomodations. This is a top chamber music festival!"
