Within the framework of the Princess of Asturias Foundation’s International Music School Summer Courses, which are held between 18th and 27th July, teachers and students will be offering a total of seventeen concerts. Nine of these will be at the Príncipe Felipe Auditorium and at the University of Oviedo Historic Building. Admission to all the concerts will be free until all seats are taken.

The teachers' concert will be held for the first time at the Philharmonic Theatre on Saturday, 20th July, at 8:00 p.m. The programme will be devoted mainly to 19th and 20th-century European composers, from the German Romanticism of Richard Wagner, to the French Impressionism of Maurice Ravel and the Modernism of Granados, as well as works by Hindemith and Gretchaninov. Teachers specializing in keyboard, woodwind, string and voice will be performing in the concert.

After the success of previous years, the School will once again set into motion the “Music on Wheels” cycle. A vintage van will be driving around the most emblematic places in the city to offer four outdoor concerts aimed at bringing classical music to everyone.

For the third year in a row, the “Micro Theatre Concerts” will be held, performed by course students accompanied by actors. This activity will take place on Sunday, 21st July, at 7:30 p.m., in Plaza Porlier in Oviedo.

A total of 135 students from the United States, Mexico, Mozambique, Venezuela and Spain are taking part in this year’s Summer Courses. The Courses have an initial generic grant that allows all enrolled students to have access to more affordable tuition fees. In 2018, the Foundation covered 57.7 per cent of the cost of the School's activities.

The classes will be taught by twenty-seven teachers of seven different nationalities (Armenian, Spanish, American, Israeli, Dutch, Russian and Ukrainian) and will include voice and keyboard, string and woodwind instruments, as well as subjects in musical ensemble. These teachers are prestigious musicians from centres such as Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, the Ra'anana Music Center in Israel, the University of Maryland School of Music (United States) and the Royal Music Conservatory in Madrid and from orchestras such as the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra (United States) and the Spanish Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra. The faculty also includes musical directors and assistants from the Zarzuela National Lyric Theatre and the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra.
