World stars as guests in Eppan
“All the conditions for the Eppan Summer of Song are perfect here in Eppan: two wonderful concert halls with magnificent acoustics, and the wonderful grand piano, that all permit us to offer a first-class service. This wonderful combination of landscape, old residences, wine and beautiful music means Eppan is predestined as a place where you can simultaneously enjoy both holidays and culture.”
Thus celebrated stars of the stage come from all over the world to the Eppan Summer of Song, held in July of each year. Two master classes under professional direction lie at the heart of the festival. The master classes are open to the public, so that audience, students and teachers can all get to know and appreciate each other. The final concert allows students to demonstrate what they have learnt. The song evenings and matinees, held during the same period, see world-renowned singers and pianists appearing at the Lanserhaus or the Eppan Cultural Hall. The Summer of Song has been organised for the past 30 years by the South Tyrolean Centre for Education. Brigitte Fassbaender, as well as holding one of the two master classes, has for the last ten years been its artistic director.
