The Woodstock Academy
Away. Together. Educating.
From 20. - 26. August 2023 in the Brixental valley
This isn't a big festival. It's a huge training week! With amazing instructors and lecturers. With unbelievable quality, range and depth. And all of that with the incomparable feeling of Woodstock brass band music. That's why the Woodstock Academy is taking place for the second time, in August , 2022, after the more than successful premiere.
The "can do but don't have to do everything" programme
How does the Woodstock Academy work? It's actually quite simple: there's a basic offer with high-quality workshops, lectures, interviews, events and "Mental & Physical" workshops for groups. Then there is the extraordinary additional offer with professional tips in individual lessons, ensemble lessons, band lessons or individual "Mental & Physical" coaching. All, of course, with only the best instructors and lecturers. As if that was not enough, an extensive, completely free, but all the more cosy social programme awaits all participants - in the middle of the picturesque grassy mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps.
And there's more on top:
checkA musical opening evening in a class of its own
checkThe "legendary" WDB regular musicians social group
checkWoodstock Academy music performed daily in the mountain huts in the Brixen Valley
check"Mittwochsfest'l" in Brixen - presented by Woodstock der Blasmusik
check"Schau Zuichi Markt" in Westendorf presented by Woodstock der Blasmusik
checkThe obligatory "Woodstock Night" in Kirchberg
checkAnd of course: the joint performance high up in the mountains
Open to all, something for everyone.
