Dear Music Lovers,

It is my great pleasure to have been appointed patron for the 62nd edition of the International Summer Academy of Collegium Musicum Schloss Pommersfelden. The summer academy brings together young artists from across the world. The inspiring environment of Schloss Weissenstein is the scene of intense rehearsal sessions, with music building a bridge to Upper Franconia, a region famous for its rich cultural and musical heritage. Our sincere thanks go to the family of the Counts von Schönborn for making the event possible. I wish all participants much pleasure making music together, and I hope they meet an enthusiastic audience.

Heidrun Piwernetz
President of District Government Upper Franconia


More information will follow shortly.


Collegium Musicum Schloss Pommersfelden is a summer music academy for the promotion of young talent. At the academy, gifted young musicians have the opportunity to further their musical studies, develop their personalities and collaborate with other artists.
The castle’s baroque marble hall provides a unique setting for the young artists, who are given the opportunity to perform for an audience in orchestras and chamber music ensembles. In the inspiring atmosphere at Schloss Pommersfelden, young musicians who meet at the academy are sure to make a positive and personally enriching experience. Jenö Nyári is artistic director and manager of the event.
