Mélange Vienna aims to give pianists and vocalists, students, music teachers, and music lovers from around the world a cost-effective means to attend an intensive music course in a city seeped in rich history and cultural traditions.
For 10 days in early July, participants attend private lessons, master classes, and lectures, and learn about the daily lives and professions of our faculty through “Artist Encounter” sessions. All participants will experience the heartbeat of Vienna’s past and present culture through excursions, German language classes, and concert attendance.
Participants also spread and strengthen the foundation's mission by performing in outreach recitals in hospitals and elderly homes. Mélange Vienna is capped by a final recital in an important venue in Vienna, such as the United Nations, Bösendorfer Recital Hall, and the Eroica Saal,
A limited number of scholarships are provided for students in need, especially from developing areas of the world. In collaboration with the DoReMi Foundation, Mélange IMF has also offered additional support for one pianist who is a refugee or migrant in Austria to attend.
The inaugural season of Mélange Vienna launched in July 2019. The next summer program of Mélange Vienna is TBD at this time.
