MMCV is a full-scholarship, classical music seminar open to young music students from around the world. The program brings together world-renowned artists and students of diverse cultural backgrounds to spend the summer in Valencia, Spain. This is a special learning opportunity not available anywhere else.
Full Scholarship, International Setting
At MMCV tuition is free. Scholarships cover all expenses including transportation, lodging and meals. Students stay together at the same hotel. All instruction is in English.
The first two weeks the focus is on chamber music. String players work on string quartet pieces, and wind players on woodwind quintet pieces. Violinists gain experience in both 1st and 2nd violin parts. Students get to showcase what they learned in an actual chamber music performance. After that, students spend three days in orchestra rehearsal, culminating in a collaborative orchestra performance with MMCV professors.
MMCV instructors include Vicent Alberola and our staff of distinguished professors. Professors take turns directing each group, allowing students to get valuable input from different perspectives. Each student receives personalized one-on-one instruction in a friendly, nurturing environment that encourages a free exchange of ideas. At the final concert, students get to perform alongside their professors.
Besides instruction, students get to participate in activities including a Spanish cultural event, dining in spanish Villa, and of course, the closing celebration. We are confident that students will create lasting memories of their summer spent here in the port city of Valencia.
