Founded in 2013, the Harpa International Music Academy, HIMA, is a unique summer festival in the northernmost capital of the world, that focuses equally on training and performance. HIMA is ideally located in the mid-Atlantic and draws participants from Europe, Asia and the Americas.
   Not only do we recognize and promote young musicians through performances in Harpa, a world-class concert hall, HIMA also offers string, wind and piano training, including solo lessons, chamber music, orchestra, masterclasses and seminars.
   Our participants range from young children to adults, and come from different continents and cultures. We come together each year during this special time of year to enjoy making music and friends under the midnight sun.
