Musethica at Zeist Music Days


Zeist Music Days is an annual international two-week chamber music festival in August. The festival activities take place in and around the Moravian Church in the historic surroundings of Zeist Castle. The festival has become a major cultural event that yearly receives rave reviews in the press. Concerts are often broadcast by Dutch classical Radio 4 and other European radio stations. Since 2008, Zeist Music Days has been under the artistic leadership of Alexander Pavlovsky, first violinist of the Jerusalem Quartet.

The festival consists of a series of concerts by internationally renowned ensembles, a fringe programme, and an extensive young talent development programme. The talent development programme consists of daily masterclasses by leading musicians who also perform at our festival, a tour in order to provide our students with stage experience and the adoption and coaching of a youngsters quartet.

Zeist Music Days will broaden their talent development with the introduction of Musethica to this festival.

As part of Zeist Music Days 2019 Avri Levitan will work intensively with the talented young musicians of Animato Quartet. They will have the opportunity to play a large number of concerts in a short timespan. Together with Avri Levitan they will perform in unusual places like prisons, schools, kindergartens, hospitals, elderly homes, homeless shelters, centers for special education. 

Musethica collaborates with prestigious festivals in different countries: The Gotland Chamber Music Festival in Sweden, The Voice of Music in Upper Galilee Chamber Music Festival in Israel, the Zeist Music Days in Holland as well as the Korsholm Music Festival in Finland. As part of those Festivals selected young musicians receive master classes and play concerts in social centers in addition to public concerts at festival venues.

By making Musethica part of those festivals they reach a larger and more diverse audience while supporting excellent young artists.
