3rd Ludwigslust International Music Academy 2024

From 24.-28.July 2024, master classes for string instruments will take place as part of the 3rd International Music Academy Ludwigslust. This year with 2 further concerts. A Pre-Concert at the location of the new building, the DeveLUP, and a Workshop concert presenting winners of the Chinese music youth competition.

The particularly appealing charisma of the city of Ludwigslust through its location, the beautiful castle, the gardens and the city church offer the best conditions. In addition, there is a musical tradition of the Ludwigslust court composers, which has existed since 1770. Thus, beyond classical music to the Baroque period.

Good atmosphere at the 1st International Music Academy Ludwigslust (IML) in summer 2022.

Greetings from the Mayor:

Welcome to Ludwigslust and the International Music Academy. I particularly welcome all participating young musical talents. Ludwigslust is a city of short distances. I think not only the good conditions will convince you, but also the friendliness and proverbial warmth of Mecklenburgers will be an optimal environment for all contributors of the International Music Academy. We wish you happy making music and look forward to the concerts in our beautiful city church.

Reinhard Mach, Mayor of Ludwigslust
