Framnas Summer Course 2021

This summer you have the great opportunity to study with two of the greatest clarinetists in Sweden, Hermann Stefánsson and Martin Fröst. The course will take place in the north of Sweden, Piteå.

TEACHERS

  • Martin Fröst, clarinetist, conductor and Sony Classical recording artist, Martin Fröst is known for pushing musical boundaries and has been described by the New York Times as having ”a virtuosity and a musicianship unsurpassed by any clarinettist – perhaps any instrumentalist – in my memory”.
  • Hermann Stefánsson, Solo clarinetist at the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and Professor at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Stefánsson is also a member of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Wind Quintet and the Swedish Serenade Ensemble. He has been a soloist with many Swedish and non-Swedish orchestras, including the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra.

 

ABOUT THE SUMMER COURSE

The course will take place at Framnäs folkhögskola in Piteå from June 11 until June 15. Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 situation and the uncertain travel restrictions for non EU members we can only welcome EU citizens this summer. Minimum age for applying is 18 year. Students which are accepted to this course are responsible to be informed about the entry and return rules that apply from your destination.

For everyone’s safety we will also ask all students to take an antigen test upon arrival to Framnäs. Since the course starts June 11 all participants must be in place no later than the morning of June 10 for the mandatory antigen test. This applies to all students even if you already have a valid certificate of a Covid-19 negative test from your flight.

The test is included in the course fee.

If the state of infection deteriorates or remains at the same level as today April 22, the course will take place online. This will be announced no later than June 1.
