Theresa de Wit

One of our students, Teresa de Wit, joined some of the world’s most gifted young singers at the International Summer Academy in Salzburg this week.

Teresa, a B. Mus. Honours student under the tutelage of Petrus van Heerden from the University of the Free State’s Odeion School of Music (OSM), has been selected to participate in master classes presented by applauded soprano Barbara Bonney.

The Mozarteum Music University hosts the International Summer Academy in Salzburg every year during July and August. It has become one of the world’s biggest and most renowned institutions of its kind, offering 60 master classes for between 800 and 1 000 participants. Founded in 1916 by Lilli Lehmann to teach voice, the programme was expanded over the years to include violin, piano, composition, and conducting and opera courses. It was named the Mozarteum International Summer Academy in 1947.

During the six-week summer academy, the crème de la crème of professional artists share their expertise during two weeks of intensive courses. Over the years the summer academy has also become the scouting ground for the foremost music agencies of Europe and the United States of America.
