St. Goar International Music Festival and Academy

Chanda is delighted to be returning to St. Goar International Music Festival and Academy in Germany in June/July 2015 as an opera pianist and Lieder Coach. During their inaugural season in 2014 she was proud to teach a select group of talented international, college-aged voice majors and graduate level pianists as well as accompanying the master class of her dear friend and esteemed colleague, Julius Drake.

The Sankt Goar International Music Festival and Academy was successfully launched in 2014 with its Art Song Summer Program.

This program is the only one in continental Europe to encompass a wide scope of repertoire: German Lied, French mélodie, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Swedish, English and American art song.

It is a boutique program offered to a maximum of twelve participants per session onlysingers and collaborative pianists who are committed to developing and honing their skills as applied to the art song recital.

Its faculty roster includes some of the world’s leading singers, voice teachers, coaches and collaborative pianists.

Since the students come from all over the world, and whereas English is the most commonly spoken language in the world, all instruction is in English. You do NOT need to speak German in order to participate!

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
