Academia Sighisoara, International Festival for young musicians

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.
