On July and August 2020 Yalta Health Resort "Nizhnaya Oreanda", located at the territory of the Historical Estate of the Imperial Family, for the fourth time hosted the "Music House Summer Academy".
Successful young soloists preparing for performances at the international competitions attended non-public master classes by outstanding Russian and foreign teachers and enjoy the picturesque Crimean resort. Each cycle of master classes is designed for 14 days.
The Music House, which occupies the Residence of Grand Duke Aleksei Aleksandrovich Romanov in St. Petersburg, opens its summer branch at the former Royal Residence on the Crimea southern coast.
Lower Oreanda was originally purchased by Alexander I and later transferred to Nicholas I, who believed that Lower Oreanda was as good as the best Italian resorts. The construction of Lower Oreanda Palace under the design project of A. Stakenschneider was completed in 1853 and destroyed by fire in 1881.
Today, the main building of the Health Resort having the same name as the Palace is located at that site, surrounded by 47 hectares of picturesque park, and the Music House Summer Academy is situated at the Kremlin building of Soviet construction period with noticeable Italian architectural motives.
