A ground-breaking program in the teaching of German Lieder

Purpose and Mission

This program is re-invigorating the teaching, performance and appreciation of German Lieder—a major chapter of western classical music. Such a training program, devoted exclusively to this important artistic genre, is unique in America.

Those who are dedicated to this most intimate and luminous of art forms—professionals from the United States and around the world—are offered the opportunity to both work intensively with internationally renowned musical artists, and perform this repertoire on a regular basis. This "graduate level" program is specifically geared to highly accomplished emerging and established professional singers and pianists. These are the supremely gifted artists who we believe can assist in our purpose of keeping Lieder where it belongs—alive!

As one of our most revered singing artists delightfully suggested, our goal is “Changing the world—one Lied at a time…”
