The target group of Europe’s biggest horn festival are horn enthusiasts, for whom focused work on music and partying aren’t mutually exclusive. The minimum age for participation is 16 years. Although the level is high it is of course suitable for non professional horn players as well. Since we arrange almost all the played music ourselves we can consider individual strengths and weaknesses when assigning parts.
Usually we build ensembles of approximately 20 to 24 players. The arrangements will be provided as downloads at least six weeks before the festivals starts so there is enough time to prepare all the music assured.
Of course our teachers also offer individual lessons without any extra costs! In order to enable one-to-one lessons with all teachers, we will also use rooms at the nearby Pullach music school next year.
Participation fees for four days including accommodation, meals and all course fees + private lessons are as follows:
Students in school or university: 320,00 €
Employed people: 380,00 €
This amount already includes the registration fee of 50,00 €.
In short, except for the drinks everything is already included!
Please note: The registration fee of 50,00 € will not be reimbursed in case of non-participation. In case of cancellations after the 1st of December, an additional fee of 50,00 € will be deducted in addition to the registration fee. Furthermore, we can not accept bank charges, not even for refunds. Please speak to your bank first and ask for any fees. Especially with foreign transfers, this is very important.
In the event of short-term cancellations (less than 10 days before the start of the festival), the full participation fee is due and not refundable.
Please also spread the word about our festival. We especially welcome new participants! It is a great opportunity to improve a lot in a short time and to benefit from experienced successful horn players. The average age of our participants is in the high twenties, the level is very good and our teachers are all excellent.

PS: At the start of the festival on February 12, we would like to invite Matias Pineiras‘ band »Los Pitutos« to our castle for an exclusive concert. The request has been made. Now we hope that it works.
