The Prades International Music Academy is open to high level instrumentalists and chamber music ensembles from all countries. It takes place in Prades from August 1st to 14th 2019 during the Pablo Casals Festival.

Every year the Academy of the Festival Pablo Casals, under the guidance of Françoise Lethiec, will welcome highly skilled students during the Festival who represent more than 20 nationalities. Their youth and talent enbody the future of both chamber music and the Festival. And this future demonstrates its universality thanks to the diversity of their countries of origin.

Thus, Prades is a meeting place for musicians and music lovers of the world, as it was during Pau Casals’ times. Everyone is invited to gather around an inventive programme which is full of surprises to live very often amazing performances in some wonderful venues of the Conflent which are equipped with remarkable acoustics”

Jean Castex, President of the Festival Pablo Casals
