History


The Academy Sighişoara was founded in 1993 as the Summer Music Festival Sighişoara, by the Romanian-born Swiss violinist Alexandru Gavrilovici and the Swiss flautist Heidi Indermühle. What began as a modest master course for music students from Switzerland and Romania in the romantic surroundings of the Sighişoara fort, soon became a significant Music Festival, attracting the notice of the international media. Within two years, instruction in another instrument was offered through the participation of the pianist Geradro Vila and since then, every year a dozen internationally renowned professors representing various instruments have taken part in the Festival's courses and concerts. The inclusion of MediabFilm and Photography since 2009 has extended the Festival into the field of Visual Arts.
