Musical Odyssey master classes are the premier summer school programme in Greece. This programme is designed to support young talent at the beginning of their career and provide concert opportunities and introductions to music agencies for representation as well as working with children and amateur musicians who love music.
We feel very passionate about the need of support to young artists in the increasingly competitive classical music world.
We do this by delivering world-class tuition and guidance from internationally outstanding musicians to young musicians who are making their first steps in their international musical career, by supporting children in their learning (see our offer) and amateur musicians.
