WYWOP – Testimonials

Whether new culture, new friendships, new music or simply new experiences - the participants of the World Youth Wind Orchestra Project of the last years were enthusiastic. For them it was certainly not the last trip to Schladming.
Let yourself be inspired by their reports:

Samantha W., bassoonist from the USA - WYWOP participant
"I am so excited for WYWOP 2019 because it is this incredibly special and wonderful time when a group of passionate musicians come together for one precious week to celebrate music in the Alps. WYWOP brought me my dearest friends and blessed me with many sweet memories of breathing in the fresh mountain air, enjoying the historic ambience of the Royer hotel, playing prolific wind music and screaming bar songs into the morning hours. I am so happy that WYWOP continues to impact its musicians and audiences each year, and I’m so lucky be a part of this family!"

Valentin P., trombonist from Austria - WYWOP participant
"When WYWOP was over in 2018, I was a little sad that this week passed so quickly. But even before I left Schladming, I knew that I would register again next year. Now it is time again, and I can not wait to meet old acquaintances again, to make music together and to have fun. Personally, WYWOP brings me a lot, as I can develop myself both musically and personally. I can really advise every music enthusiast to see the Mid EUROPE Festival and, if possible, to be part of it, because it's really unique and you do not forget the impressions all your life."
