Dear friends,

You cannot imagine how thrilled I am to invite you to join the 20th edition of AIMS!
In 2002 we started with the vision to create an outstanding international music academy and festival. The beginning was humble and promising at the same time. And now we are already looking forward to the 20th birthday edition.

During these past years thousands of extraordinarily talented students from all continents joined to learn more with us, to perform in our many concerts in the most beautiful locations, to meet and friendship with others, to try out new languages or even to enjoy Solsona counties summer sunshine and delightful mountain sceneries.

2021 will be even more special. We are working hard to prepare a wonderful 20th anniversary event for all of you.

Have a look at our prestigious faculty!

Imagine to be one of the performers of more than 40 concerts!

Join and experience AIMS, this unique community of professional musicians, outstanding students, a year by year increasing audience which enjoys music at its best in the most beautiful venues of our beloved Solsona region.

Just to make sure: in times of pandemic AIMS commits to full reimbursement in case of any circumstance which might lead you or us to cancellations. So, no worries here!

Stay tuned and see you soon!

Peter Thiemann
President AIMS Foundation


The AIMS Festival is the only pedagogical music festival in the country. It was designed to address a pedagogical need of the project – that of interpretation. The festival is therefore a great opportunity for young people from around the world to offer their talent to the public, and for the public to get know those young musicians who will certainly become great musicians in the coming years.

The AIMS Festival is also an opportunity to hear soloists from all the major European orchestras, and professors from some of the top music colleges worldwide, perform.

The Festival comprises of over 40 performances on various stages throughout Solsonès, Lleida, Cardona, Organyà, Moià and other parts of central Catalonia, further concerts of classical format take place in concert halls, churches and theaters, concerts of AIMS Street, and AIMS Social concerts are performed in hospitals, elderly centers, residences, associations and private homes.

The high standard of the students, the intensity of work done during the Academy and the exceptional quality of teachers result in a unique festival, intimate and of high quality.
