Crescendo (www.crescendo.org) is an international movement of classical and jazz musicians (professionals and students) and other artists. The Summer Institute in Sárospatak, Hungary, is a great opportunity for young people preparing for or considering a career in the arts to study alongside seasoned professional artists in a Christian environment and with the chance to learn more about Christianity. Excellent Christian musicians–soloists and members of leading European and American orchestras–offer courses and private lessons in the following areas: Voice, Opera, Solo Instrument and Chamber Music (violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, oboe, trumpet), Orchestra, Choir Conducting, Youth Chamber Music, Classical Guitar, Piano, Accompaniment, Organ and Theater. The course is open to all qualified young musicians regardless of their faith persuasion. The application deadline is June 1, though that may be extended. Go to www.hungary.crescendo.org to learn more or to register.
