As always, the piano and chamber music course taking place in the 21st year was fully booked and the participants can look back on very nice concert
experiences and joint activities after the end of the course week. In the follow-up concert that took place on June 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Alte Schule in
Ruhpolding, the audience was able to convince themselves of the excellent performances of the young musicians in the fully occupied hall. It was not
without pride that the organizers also announced that 3 participants in the course had been awarded a 1st and two 2nd federal prizes
of the Jugend musiziert Competition.
In the parish hall of the Evangelical Johanneskirche Christl-Probst-Straße 19, 83324 Ruhpolding, free admission.
Performers: Karin Beer, piano, transverse flute, Felix Beer, oboe, Raphaela Debus, violin, Nannette-Christine Goletzko, piano. With works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Schumann, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and selected Japanese composers.
The guest of honor, Mr. Claus Pichler, Mayor of Ruhpolding, also congratulated on the 20th anniversary of the course "Wir machen Musik - Klassik in Ruhpolding". Thank you all for the many course participants and helpers!
Even in the 20th year of the course "Wir machen Musik", beginning in 1998, this musical event has not lost its fascination. In the crowded hall of the
Alte Schule in Ruhpolding, the audience was offered an exciting final concert. Among others, there were national prize winners in piano solo 2017:
Danai Voigatzi, AG III 1st prize, Markus Philipp Schirmer, piano solo, AG VI, 3rd prize and Sonja Andreasch together
with Diane Lahmi, both cello, AG IV, 3rd prize. The final concert also featured Raphaela Debus, violin, with Lukas Phan, piano, who
won a 1st prize in the Karel-Kunc competition in Bad Dürkheim, AG VI in October 2016.
We were also very happy to welcome a number of new course participants, e.g. Manuela Hannebuth (4 years old) and her sister Dorothea Hannebuth (7 years old), who amazed the audience at this age due to their musical achievements.
The very successful course at Pentecost in Ruhpolding with numerous participants from many German cities culminated in this year's final concert on May 22, 2016. The concert showed amazing performances by the young artists and was framed by long applause and numerous "Bravo" calls.
