For the 55th time now approx. 125 young musicians will meet again at this workshop for choir and orchestra at the German-Danish border. During these days a challenging program will be rehearsed and presented in two public concerts. Rehearsals will be held in tutti, as well as sectional, conducted by lecturers of the different orchestra and choir groups.

During our music week a major focus lies on international meeting and communication between Germans, Scandinavians and the Baltic States. However, participants from all over the world are most welcome. In 2015, for example, 15 different nations participated.

When registering, please choose for choir or orchestra. Nevertheless all participants are welcome to join the common choir or rehearse chamber music in different formations. The results will be presented in three in-house concerts. We also offer Scandinavian and international folk dancing during the whole event.
