About the Summer Academy

The Angelika Prokopp Summer Academy of the Vienna Philharmonic promotes the training of young orchestral talent. The Vienna Philharmonic Summer Academy in Salzburg has existed for over ten years and is held during the Salzburg Festival. Playing in an orchestra of the highest quality is related to listening to each other, to interact with each other and to the flexibility between the musicians - this is to be learned and sharpened in the musical work ranging from chamber music in small groups to the large orchestra within the framework of the Summer Academy.

The Angelika Prokopp Summer Academy of the Vienna Philharmonic is a unique course for young musicians that focuses on orchestral playing, chamber music and audition training. For the year 2022, far-reaching conceptual restructuring has been undertaken so that an even more extensive spectrum of musical activities can be presented to the young talents. For the first time, it will also be possible for young musicians of all nationalities to apply for the Angelika Prokopp Summer Academy.

Stage Music

Depending on the programme of the Salzburg Festival, the core element that remains is the opportunity for the academy members to participate in the stage music of opera performances by the Vienna Philharmonic.
