Masterclasses, Workshops, Chamber Music, Orchestra, and more!
Aurora Music is proud to launch a new festival in the heart of Aurora country, where Aurora launched it’s festivals and masterclasses back in 2006!
A new, elite course specialising in orchestra playing, ensemble work and chamber music will make its debut this August in the twin cities of Trollhättan and Vänersborg, just 12 kilometres apart in beautiful western Sweden.
String players will be boosted by the Aurora Chamber Orchestra and learn from playing next to and listening to our own outstanding string orchestra. They will also have individual classes, chamber music coaching, and perform in concerts!
Wind players will benefit from the expert advise and coaching of Gaby Pas-Van Riet. A special course where only a few wind players will be admitted and receive intensive coaching on ensemble playing, chamber music and orchestral work.
Likewise, brass players will benefit from the experience and expertise of Tom Poulson from the legendary Stockholm Chamber Brass. Special sessions in chamber music, brass technique, warm-ups, audition training and career advise will all be paired with sectionals.
Percussionists will have the opportunity to play chamber music and study orchestral playing under the guidance of maestro Johannes Gustavsson.
The wonderful Russian pianist Vladimir Ovchinnikov joins us this year for the first time! A small number of pianists will have solo classes and chamber music coaching as well as play in concert with the specially selected students for this masterclass.
Very few places are available for this brand new festival and the wonderful experience is available to all European Citizens who have completed at least one year of university level studies for free, and on top of that will be worth 7.5 ECTS credits!
