Welcome to Thy Chamber Music Festival 2014
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 2014!

Two weeks of coaching and performing at the Thy Chamber Music Festival was for me an exceptional experience not only in terms of music making, but also for the tremendous satisfaction of coming to a deeper undertanding of people through music.
Working from morning to evening on the most exquisite and challenging chamber music, playing in groups together with a select group of exceptional participants from around the world, performing nearly every night in the second week ...and all of this in the inspiring setting which the Thy region offers. This is precisely what a true musician dreams of.
If you are serious and passionate about performing chamber music well, this is the place to be.
