Application and requirements

 

Important information regarding Covid-19

Last few months have been difficult for all of us. We had to learn to live and do a lot of things differently. World wide quarantine is a unique precedent in history with its struggles and possibilities either. We are forced to make a huge leap towards online communication if we want to continue a lot of things we used to do, for example studying.

So we are happy to announce, that this year will be very special for Ars SummerFest, because for the first time we are going ONLINE! Students will have an opportunity to participate in a masterclass with well-known professors despite the quarantine.

Furthermore, there is a -50% discount for all the courses. The dates of masterclasses will remain the same except for Reinhard Latzko and Maria Kliegel lessons – they are postponed for 2021.

EARLY BIRD registration is extended to 11th of May.
You are still also able to qualify for the main prize – Lithuania Concert Tour 2021 until the 11th of May!
