Welcome to the Festival Hildasholmsmusiken!

A unique music festival above the ordinary in beautiful Dalarna

Hildasholmsmusiken is a music festival that takes place in September every year in and around Hildasholm, Leksand.

The event’s aims are threefold:

  • To create opportunities for world-class musicians to collaborate outside the concert circuit and explore new ideas.
  • To provide a platform for talented music students to learn from leading experts
  • And to bring great music to this corner of Sweden, inspiring local audiences, both children and adults, to a greater understanding and appreciation of all music.

Hildasholmsmusiken has a strong focus on music education and training for the young. The main concerts take place in the early evenings, and during the day the resident musicians deliver a series of masterclasses to talented students from the best music schools and colleges. During a week of intense musical work, students have the chance to learn from renowned professionals from some of the best orchestras and ensembles in the world, receiving fresh, candid advice at a crucial time in their development. The course culminates in two final concerts where they have the opportunity to show what they learned throughout the week and to perform side by side with their tutors.

It was a beautiful and classic musical journey I met when visiting the festival Hildasholmsmusiken in Leksand. I will definitly return.

Hildasholmsmusiken also works closely with local primary and secondary schools throughout the year, offering children free additional opportunities to engage with music by way of fun, curriculum-complementing workshops. Don’t miss their showcase at the festival Hildasholmsmusiken which opens the 12th of September 2022 in Leksand!

Warm welcome!
