Villa Jolimont

The "music weeks" first took place on Jolimont in the summer of 1963; they were conceived by David Tillmann and his wife Regine Tillmann-Pfaehler, who became the programme's directors.
Together with their children, who are now grown, they decided the transition to the current offer of music camps at Villa Jolimont.
The popular music weeks were expanded to five different camps in 1994 and participation was extended to adult musicians.

Since 2004, Villa Jolimont has hosted activities promoted by the association Jolimont Musique, with Regine Tillmann-Pfaehler as president. Villa Jolimont is supported by Jolimont Musique, sponsors, and individual music lovers.
Each year, week-long music camps are held at Villa Jolimont along with courses for children, teens, and adults. Chamber music – playing in small groups – is at the heart of the project.



Musical holidays weeks and courses for children, teenagers and adults are held every year at Villa Jolimont. Chamber music - playing together in small groups - is at the heart of them.

Villa Jolimont - Stage 2016


The music camps are coordinated by the Jolimont Musique association and held by a team of professional music instructors. The groups, ranging from fifteen to twenty-five participants, create a welcoming atmosphere in which music becomes a natural part of life.

The programmes' structure and strong values, with an emphasis on living together respectfully, assuming responsibility, and making music together, help strengthen participants' social skills.

Each course and camp session ends with a final concert that showcases the pieces and performances for an enthusiastic audience.

The Aim

The music camps and courses are designed to encourage and motivate aspiring musicians.

Alongside its music camps for children and teens and music courses for adults, Villa Jolimont offers music and art activities which are open to everybody. At Villa Jolimont, personal initiative, independence, and a sense of responsibility are supported and encouraged in a creative atmosphere
