Concertmasters and principal players from the major orchestras of the United States come together as the American faculty of PMF – “PMF AMERICA” – representing an orchestral culture that has come to rival that of Europe and that shines brightly on the world stage. The international PMF Academy receives a kind of educational experience only possible at PMF, learning high-level craft from these world-class artists, in whose footsteps Academy members aspire to follow on their path toward becoming professional musicians themselves. In addition to their teaching responsibilities, PMF AMERICA faculty musicians also perform chamber concerts, captivating audiences every year. Some among them were even Academy members themselves, returning now to instruct the next generation.
