  • FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

    InterHarmony recognizes the current pandemic and world situation has made travel impossible since March 2020. In response, InterHarmony mounted an online festival that was not only a technological feat, but provided an intensive learning experience which included many performance master classes, musical seminars with internationally-renowned musical guests, lessons with famous professors, networking, social music meetings, and cultural learning opportunities. InterHarmony built on this success and launched the first ever online music conservatory, the InterHarmony International School of Music. If circumstances continue to prevent international travel, InterHarmony will move the in-person festival online using the experience and infrastructure we have in place.
