VERÃO CLÁSSICO Professors will tutor Masterclasses on technique and musical interpretation, which will take place simultaneously in several rooms of Escola Secundária Marquês de Pombal / Escola Artística de Música do Conservatório Nacional (Rua Alexandre de Sá Pinto, 85, 1349-003 Lisboa), where rooms will also be available for study and rehearsal by the young musicians participating.

All participants in the Masterclasses are candidates for VERÃO CLÁSSICO Awards, whose jury is composed by the Masterclasses teachers. These prizes, in the form of concerts included in musical seasons held in Portugal, have an important role of motivation and recognition of talent and the participation by the young musicians during VERÃO CLÁSSICO. Some of the young musicians awarded in the previous editions already had the opportunity to present themselves as soloists with Portuguese orchestras – Orquestra do Norte, Orquestra Filarmonia das Beiras and Orquestra Clássica do Sul - and in international music festivals.

VERÃO CLÁSSICO, thus, promotes education and public presentation of young talents, encouraging and supporting them to build their careers, and at the same time, encouraging cultural exchange among participants of different nationalities. To Portuguese students it offers, in their own country, a platform for development of their artistic level and the exceptional possibility of learning with the most prestigious international teachers, worldwide references of their instruments.

The educational axis of VERÃO CLÁSSICO is complemented by the performative axis, formed by the Chamber Music Festival which, during the ten days of the Festival, will present daily concerts with great works from the music repertoire from the 18th to 21st centuries: four MasterFest concerts, with the presence of musicians/teachers, as well as six TalentFest concerts, in which the young and talented VERÃO CLÁSSICO musicians, already awarded nationally and/or internationally, will participate.

Created in 2015, Festival and Academy VERÃO CLÁSSICO assumes itself as an unique artistic and pedagogical initiative in Portugal, a project of cultural excellence open to all audiences.
