VENI ACADEMY: 4×4 – registration

Čítaj tento článok v slovenčine!

With six years of history, tens of concerts on big stages and a double CD which won us a 2013 Radio_Head Award, we in the VENI ACADEMY project feel that it is time again to invite new participants – students of music at conservatories and music colleges/academies.

We offer you great experiences studying contemporary music in a cool group consisting of professional musicians and students such as yourself. During 6 days several workshops of ensemble and chamber play and improvisation will be available. We’ll talk about music we like and also engage in non-musical activities. The project will wind up with an ensemble concert in Bratislava on the Radio_Head Awards festival.

The participation fee of 250 EUR covers admission to workshops and accommodation. 18 selected students can get a scholarship which covers the participation fee. Your only expense will be the trip to Bratislava and back.

Venue: Slovak Radio, Mýtna 1, Bratislava

Date: March 6–12, 2016

Deadline for submissions: February 12, 2016
