We are very happy to welcome you for the 27th time to our festival »Carnaval du Cor«.

Our teachers will be (in alphabetical order):

The target group of Europe’s biggest horn festival are horn enthusiasts at the age of 16 to 45, for whom focused work on music and partying aren’t mutually exclusive. 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.

Usually we build ensembles of approximately 20 to 24 players. The arrangements will be provided as downloads at least six 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!

The course fees are the following:

Students in school or university: 290,00 €
Employed people: 350,00 €

The fee includes accommodation, food (all beverages excluded) as well as the costs for the course and if requested individual lessons. Please note: in the case of short notice cancelations (less than 30 days before the festival starts) we will charge 100,00 € service fee.

For our next edition there will be three concerts: 

Saturday, 22rd of February, 7:00 pm at Basilica „Erlöserkirche“ (Ungererstr. 15, 80802 Munich) 
Sunday, 23rd of February, 6:00 pm at Basilica „St. Pankratius“ (Brunnenstr. 1, 86165 Augsburg) 
Monday, 24th of February, 7:00pm at Basilica „Pauluskirche“ (Frauenstr. 110, 89073 Ulm)

The concert in Ulm inkluding the guest appearance of Radek Baborák and his ensemble costs 20,00 € (reduced 12,00 €). Tickets are available at the box office, which will be open from 6:00 pm. Timely appearance is recommended.

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 for little money. The average age of our participants is in the high twenties, the level is very good and our teachers are all excellent.

Best wishes from – your team
