HIMA-USA Chamber Music Concert

Inspired by their Icelandic sister festival, Harpa International Music Academy (HIMA), HIMA-USA is an intergenerational, summer music academy focusing on the study and performance of string solo and chamber music.

HIMA-USA will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14 in Hoover Auditorium. The world-renowned artist faculty at HIMA-USA join forces for a chamber music performance featuring works by Antonín Dvořák, Tania León and Robert Schumann. Performers include award-winning chamber musicians Sibbi Bernhardsson, Angela Cheng, Amit Even-Tov, Mari Sato and Eric Wong.

HIMA-Iceland was founded in 2013 to offer high-level training for music students through solo and chamber music instruction, master classes, seminars, social events, and concerts in Reykjavik’s iconic, world-class concert venue, Harpa Concert Hall.

In addition to serving Icelandic music students, HIMA-Iceland draws participants from around the world including Europe, the Americas and Asia.

HIMA-Iceland’s artistic director, Sibbi Bernhardsson, is also the co-founder and artistic director of HIMA-USA. Along with his wife and co-founder, HIMA-USA executive director Sally Takada, Berharadsson has curated a festival with three key program elements — a string quartet intensive for advanced pre-formed quartets, a junior string intensive and a chamber music workshop for adult amateur string players. Serving an intergenerational mix of musicians, each program enhances and inspires others, fostering a supportive community of chamber music lovers.
