 As written in the information below, the organisation of the festival composes the workshops orchestras according to the wishes of the participants, as far as possible!

As there were not enough people interested in playing in workshops 4 (Vladigerov),7 (composer in residence) and 9 (wind ensemble), the organisation was forced to cancel these three workshops.



The concept of the European Orchestra Festivals of EOFed is based on inclusion and broad participation. Therefore all participating musicians do register for a workshop. Each participant is invited to indicate in the list his/her preference for a workshop  and indicate 3 alternatives definitely.

According to the interest in the selection of workshops some of workshops could be doubled if there should be an overwhelming interest in a workshop and could be cancelled if there is too little interest to form the orchestra that is needed for the workshop.
