Below is a snapshot of the week from 2022. The schedule for 2023 will likely be similar, but there will be some changes. The snapshot is meant to persuade you to clear your schedule as much as possible for this week and immerse yourself in the institute experience, to benefit as much as possible from the classes and concerts. Note that teacher workshops are not shown on the snapshot.
