Horto Festival - Seminars 2020

Summer Orchestral Workshop: Open Orchestra

1 - 8 August 2020

The Horto Orchestral Workshop is aimed at students of all instruments of a

symphony orchestra. Within the Workshop, young musicians will have the opportunity

to be actively involved in the process of preparing and presenting a demanding symphony concert. In addition to technical and interpretative issues, emphasis will be given to issues related to collaboration, such as ethics, team spirit, and artistic teamwork. The Workshop is under the general supervision of Anastasios Strikos in collaboration with experienced teachers who supervise and prepare the individual orchestral groups.

Application and Selection Process

Interested applicants must complete the application form (available here) by April 30, 2020. Especially for orchestras, senior students recommended by their teacher as well as new graduates will be accepted.

Selection and announcement of participants will take place in the first ten days of May. The choice will be based on the level of study and in addition the priority on the date of application.


For 2020 the seminar is under the auspices of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The cost of participation is 25€. Participants themselves bear the costs of travel and accommodation.
