Performance and Selection

Groups and repertoire will be selected by the course management before arrival in Vänersborg. Detailed information about all this will be sent out to all selected students 4 weeks in advance.

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 the Festival concerts are usually sold-out and draw a lot of media attention.
