What is WAWOP?

The World Adult Wind Orchestra Project (WAWOP) is a music project for experienced wind orchestra musicians from all over the world who want to experience a challenging, social and enriching week of music making at Mid Europe.

The WAWOP is designed for musicians ages 32 and up (no upper limit) and open by application. Band directors, music teachers, community band members, and music lovers who want to play at the highest level with well-known conductors and composers are encouraged to apply. WAWOP runs concurrently with the World Youth Wind Orchestra Project (WYWOP) for musicians age 16-32. We offer an inspiring week of music and opportunities to enjoy the Mid EUROPE Music Festival, the Austrian Alps, and local culture. In 2024 the Mid Europe Festival is planned from 7th to 14th July. For the WAWOP participants the music week starts already on July 6th with the arrival.
