WYWOP (World-Youth-WindOrchestra Project)

The World Youth WindOrchestra Project is a musical highlight with an interactive cultural exchange!

The World Youth Wind Orchestra Project (WYWOP) has been a fundamental part of the Mid EUROPE International Wind Music Festival since its beginning in 1997. It is an opportunity for musicians ages 16 to 30 from all over the world to come to Schladming for an intense week of music making, bonding, and growing as individuals. Being part of WYWOP is a great musical and cultural experience for participants and members have the opportunity to work with international conductors, composers, and section coaches.

The orchestra project usually has three appearances as part of the festival - for One as part of the opening ceremony, at the children's concert and as a highlight, the own concert on Saturday evening.
