We are delighted to welcome all the festival participants and our distinguished colleagues who have traveled from all over the world to share this wonderful summer experience of the Semper Music International Festival 2018 (named Schlern Festival before 2016).

Set in pastoral surroundings of South Tyrol, Schlern region, this massive music festival revolves in its own hospitable universe for three weeks of a short summer season. We are sure that the slogan of our festival, “making music together”, will symbolize friendly relations and collaborations, as well as joy for a memorable music experience.

We wish to give special thanks to the Governor of South Tyrol, Dr. Arno Kompatscher and Mayor of Völs am Schlern, Mr. Othmar Stampfer, for their support, and priceless contributions to the arts. We also would like to thank all our sponsors for their generosity. Most of all, we offer our special gratitude to the people and the guests of the Schlern region. Without your love for music, and appreciation for what we do for you, our festival would not have grown into one of the best musical events in the region.

We hope you will join us for many unforgettable music performances and experience the extraordinary artistry in fabulous works presented by students and faculty of the Semper Music International Festival.

Welcome, Wilkommen, Bienvenuto, Bienvenieu, Добро пожаловать!
