The Vienna Intensive is an enriching and memorable experience. Sol has curated the perfect balance of culture, performance opportunities, professional development, and musical growth for every participant. Not only is Sol knowledgeable about all things Viennese, she is well connected and provided many opportunities for us to meet other artists and professionals in Vienna. Solmaaz’ attention to detail every step of the way made it possible for participants to immerse themselves in Vienna. My experience with Vienna Intensive has enriched my life as a performer, composer, and educator. Thank you, Sol!

In this, my first trip to Vienna, I anticipated meeting interesting people attached to the Vienna Intensive. I also looked forward to the master classes, singing in new venues and attending rich cultural and historic events. The program delivered! Beyond that, participants formed deep relationships in a short time. The Vienna Intensive operates with a special alchemy. I cannot wait to participate next year!
