Performance and Selection
It is an absolute requirement that all participants are in place in Trollhättan throughout the course period from 7 August at 09:00 to 18 August at 21.00.
NOTE! we can never make any exceptions to this rule. It is the same for everyone.
Groups, orchestras and repertoire will be selected by the course management before arrival in Trollhättan. Detailed information about all this will be sent out to all selected students 4 weeks in advance.
To play in the orchestra is an important part of the course where everyone participates (as well as the master classes and chamber music). Strings participate in 2-3 orchestra works / person and winds 4-5 orchestra works / person.
The professors will be performing in the festival concerts, and some student ensembles and student soloists will be selected to also perform in these concerts. The selection of wich students that will perform will be made by the course management and professors after the first few days of the course.
ALL students plays in the different orchestras (exept pianists) and chamber music groups.
All the Festival concerts are usually sold-out and draw a lot of media attention.
