Masterclasses Haliaeti 2015

The Cultural Arts Society Ars Haliaeti will be organising its fifth annual Summer Academy Masterclasses Haliaeti, which will take place in Izola—a tiny town on the Slovenian coast, just a 15-minute drive from Italy. As customary, this year the exceptional faculty will be formed by internationally acclaimed artists:

Koryun Asatryan (saxophone)

Ofer Canetti (cello)

Anja Gaberc (harp)

Oskar Laznik (saxophone)

Kevin Robert Orr (piano)

Nora Romanoff-Schwarzberg (viola)

Benjamin Ziervogel (violin)

Alenka Zupan (flute)


Where: Izola Music School, Slovenia

When: July 24 – July 31, 2015

Application Deadline: May 15, 2015 extended: June 30, 2015

Lessons and concerts will take place at the Besenghi Palace (Gregorčičeva ulica 76, 6310 Izola, Slovenia), despite its modest size, one of the most captivating venues and acoustically perfect concert halls in the country. However some concerts will be held throughout the coastal region as well. This will allow our young aspiring artists to see a few more beautiful concert halls that the area has to offer. Participats will be able to attend and enjoy our daily concerts free of charge.

Solo and Ensembles

Each soloist or chamber music group will receive four lessons with the professor of their choice. Practice rooms will be available throughout the duration of the course. Each studio will be assigned an accompanist. The tuition fee for soloists is 300€ and 500€ for chamber music ensembles. There will be plenty of opportunities to perform and selected concerts will be broadcasted live. We advise all participants to bring a shorter piece (up to 8 minutes) for this occasion.

The Chamber Music Option

The chamber music option entitles each participant to an additional three lessons. This is the ideal choice for those who would like to met new musicians and experiment playing in different ensembles. The cost of the chamber music option is 150€ (450€ in total). Our faculty will review each application and create an ensemble from the pool of participants. The faculty will also choose the appropriate repertoire for the ensemble based on the level of the applicants. Participants will be notified whether they have been chosen as an ensemble member by June 15th, 2015. This will allow enough time for participants to prepare their respective parts and start working on the piece as a group upon arrival. Each participant should feel free to invite friends or colleagues to participate as well!


The tuition fee does not include lodging and meals. However, apartments are relatively inexpensive (approximately 60$ per day) and numerous across the town center. Our staff will help with the booking process and, upon request, connect participants between them in order to reduce the costs even further.
