Join hundreds of amateur and professional musicians, students, scholars, and enthusiasts from around the world and enjoy four days to purchase instruments, restock your library with unique performance editions, learn about recent musicological developments, renew old friendships, and immerse yourself in an unparalleled opportunity for enrichment and discovery.
