We will cover travel and accommodation expenses in all three locations, but ask that you contribute by hosting other orchestra members or helping them find accommodation with friends or family in your town.

We will also cover most, but not all, food expenses, meaning that you might occasionally have to buy your own food.

We are asking for a contribution of 200 euros for participants from Germany and France, and 600 zlotys for participants from Poland. For university/school students from Germany and France under the age of 26, we are asking 150 EUR and 300 zlotys for participants from Poland. We have some scholarship positions available for this project for students whose economic situation is difficult. If you want to apply for such a scholarship please write an email to Andreas (see below) and apply in any case.

Application deadline is May 30, 2019. To apply, please fill out this form.

We are very much looking forward to hearing from you!
