Summer 2014 Program Locations

Like last year’s program, this year’s AFAF Summer Music Courses in Europe are split into two programs. The first program, Germany-France Tour, begins with a week of music study in Jena, Germany, where we are once again are hosted by the Music and Arts School. While in Jena, we’ll be making several excursions to surrounding cities, including Leipzig, Dresden, Eisenach, Nuremberg, and  Zwickau. The extended trip part of the program will take participants to Paris (Versailles).

Our Russia Tour, consists of a week of music study in Kostroma, a historic Golden Ring city on the Volga River. As well as an extended trip to other Golden Ring cities, including Yaroslavl, a World Heritage Site that features the famous Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral.  The program’s final destination is Russia’s capital, Moscow.
