Auf dieser Seite kannst du dich für die Teilnahme an der 45. Deutsch-Skandinavischen Orchesterwoche anmelden. Unsere Arbeitssprache ist Englisch, daher ist auch das folgende Anmeldeprozedere in englischer Sprache verfasst.

The application consists of three parts:

  1. the application form
  2. a recording
  3. and a registration fee of 180 €

Wind and string players should send an own recording of at least 10 min. (classical concerts and / or excerpts from the usual audition repertoire). Timpanists and percussionists send a short CV and – if possible – a letter of reference.

String players applying for a section leader position, please indicate this in the registation form. All violinists please indicate preference for 1st or 2nd violin.

The registration fee of 180 € will be deducted from course fees upon acceptance. In case of non-acceptance it will be re imbursed immediately. All bank transfer costs must be co-
vered by the applicant. In case of cancellation or withdrawal from participation, the registration fee can only be reimbursed if withdrawal is prior to the registration deadline (15 | 10 | 20).

Registration is only valid when all three parts have been submitted.
Registration deadline is 15 | 10 | 20. All applicants will receive an answer by e-mail no later than 25 | 10 | 20. All further information will be sent by email in November. Scores will also be available for download in November. We expect professional preparation from all participants.

Course fees are 380 € (including registration fee) resp. 180 € for participants from Berlin or those who have own accommodation.

The course fees include:

  • Full board accommodation at a student hostel in walking distance to the Philharmonie (multi-bed room)
  • Attendance at the dress rehearsal of the New Year’s Eve concert of Berlin Philharmonic
  • A recording of the concert at the Berlin Philharmonie (link for download, for non-commercial use only)

A limited number of scholarships are available from the German-Nordic Youth Philharmonic. These are reserved for participants with special financial needs. With this scholarship the course fees can be reduced to 180 €.

Please note that travel expenses cannot be covered.

The entire project will be documented by a professional photographer. For a moderate fee, the student can have private photographs made for his / her own use. Please refer to
