Would you like to attend the 2021 LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY 2021? Then apply here from December 2nd. 



We are delighted that you are interested in the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY. You will find a detailed announcement of the Academy’s various offerings below. Once you have submitted your application, it will be reviewed and the list of participants for the summer of 2021 will be selected. We wish you lots of success!

Since the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY had to be cancelled in summer of 2020 because of COVID-19 and the participants for 2020 have been re-invited, there are only limited or no free places for the summer of 2021, depending on the orchestral section. We ask you for your understanding.

We are looking forward to receiving your applications starting on 2 December 2020.

The deadline to apply is 14 March 2021.
