Terms of participation at the masterclasses 2019
The masterclasses of the 3rd International Kalamata Music Days are going to be held in two periods: from the 1st until the 6th July 2019 (Vocal and Stage Performance Masterclass with Aris Christofellis and Panagiotis Adam) in rooms of the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata and from the 10th until the 18th July 2019 (Violin, Violoncello and Piano Masterclasses with Felix Froschhammer, Indira Rahmatulla and Alexia Mouza respectively) in rooms of the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata and also in the Philharmonic Amphitheatre, which is located near to the conservatory.
The International Kalamata Music Days are aiming to create an environment where the young musicians can develop their artistic and technical skills in music making along with the development of the whole person through the community. The lessons will focus on the musical and technical progress of each musician encompassing his/her personal desires and goals. Musicians preparing for exams, competitions or auditions are also welcome.
Already existing chamber music ensembles (for example duets, piano trios etc.), that are interested to participate at the masterclasses and would like to present their work to more than one tutor (for example a piano trio could have lessons with Felix Froschhammer, Indira Rahmatulla and Alexia Mouza) are also welcomed and can communicate with us through our e-mail, if interested.

A full CV must be included with your online application.
In your application form you can also include audio-visual material or web links as a sample of your level. It is not necessary to send audio-visual material of the same pieces you wish to present in the masterclass, but a general sample of your playing is desired. You could send your application form without attaching material, but in this case your application, due to the limited number of possible active participants, will be considered following the applications that include audio-visual material. It is very likely that not everyone who is interested will be able to actively partake. If the applications are exceeding the available slots, the applicants will be selected according to the available audio-visual material. You can use the platform of WeTransfer or Youtube.
Those who wish to play with piano must send the sheet music as a PDF file once accepted. The accompaniment of a participant by a "personal" pianist (friend, teacher, etc.) is also possible. This, however, should be stated in the application.

Vocal and Stage Performance Masterclass: Yiannis Aeriniotis
Violin Masterclass: Lucas Georgas
