In October 2020 we successfully held a "Corona edition" of our horn festival. In this regard, we are already well grooved.
All lecturers and participants will not only feel safe, they will be safe too.
The target group of our 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.
The arrangements will be provided as downloads at least three 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!
Participation fees for four days including accommodation, meals and all course fees + private lessons are as follows:
Students in school or university: 350,00 €
Employed people: 400,00 €
This amount already includes the registration fee of 100,00 €.
In short, except for the drinks everything is already included!!!
Please note, however: the registration fee of 100.00 € will not be reimbursed in the event of non-participation. Exceptions are a course cancellation, illness on the day of arrival proven by a medical certificate, or a general entry ban into Germany. In these three cases, the entire contribution is of course returned!
It is expressly reasonable – if necessary – to present a current corona test (not older than 36 hours) or a quarantine after re-entry into the home town.
In the case of cancellations after April 15th, an additional 100.00 € will be charged as a processing fee in addition to the registration fee, and in the case of short-term cancellations (less than 3 weeks before the start of the festival), the entire participation fee will be withheld.
In short: you should just be sure that you want to participate. If you are unsure or do not have a thorough overview of your schedule, it is better not to register. We have never had any trouble and want it to stay that.
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. The beer too.
The next horn meetings:

Kind regards from Hamburg!
