For the 24th consecutive year, the Moritzburg Chamber Music Festival brings the art of music-making to the tranquil and lush town of Moritzburg, located a short distance from Dresden (Germany). This exceptional Festival continues to bring together artists from around the world for an intense two-week exchange of musical ideas, knowledge, and passion. Festival artists perform works that explore the full range of the chamber music repertoire and push the concept of the genre to its limits. The Moritzburg Festival Academy celebrates 10 years this summer. When it was founded  the goal was offer intensive musical training and support to young professional musicians. This year, forty-one musicians from around the world will come to Moritzburg to immerse themselves in chamber music, studying with Festival artists and performing throughout the Festival in small chamber groups and as part of the Festival Orchestra. The orchestra will work with Spanish conductor Josep Caballé Domenech, recently appointed General Music Director of the Staatskapelle Halle and assistant conductor Moldavan Roman Baltag.

The Moritzburg Festival under the artistic direction of internationally renowned and ECHO awarded cellist Jan Vogler was founded in 1993 by Kai Vogler, Peter Bruns and Jan Vogler. All three artists had been participants in the famous Marlboro Festival in the USA several times and were looking for an opportunity to establish a similar concept in the German federal state of Saxony—Moritzburg Castle near Dresden appeared to be the ideal setting to carry out this ambitious project.

MJC has been responsible for the coordination of international public relations for the Moritzburg Festival since 2005.
