Koper meets Graz, 25. - 27.06.2021
A group of young music students from Koper (Slovenia) visited Graz from 25-27 July 2021 and met students and teachers from the Johann Joseph Fux Conservatory.
My experience in Graz was very exciting. Our schedules were filled with exciting activities like exploring the city and visiting the opera house. The concert there was very thrilling, especially for me since the main star of the day was a trumpet player just like me. The lessons were also very interesting. It was nice to get a different perspective on how to approach playing the trumpet and how to interprete music. It was nice to hear the students from the other school playing on the final concert, because it gave me a bigger view on what the school was all about. I really hope I can meet them again and that all of them will visit Koper in next year.
Our journey and our staying in Graz was very impressive and well organized. All of our pupils and students were more than satisfied. Many thanks to you and your teacher stuff which were working with our students.
Zitat von Eduard Lanner
In the end of June a couple of clarinetists and trumpet players (as well as one saxophone player) from the music school and music gymnasium of Koper had gone to Graz to participate in a short Erasmus+ project which has been planned some time ago but could not be held due to Covid19. Nevertheless thanks to the great organisators who managed to have a lovely experience there. We had classes with foreign professors and as a clarinetist I can affirm that it was very interesting and insightful because we have a different system of playing clarinet. We even met a plastic reed maker who let us try his self made peeks, reeds and ligatures. We also explored the city of Graz. They took us to a very prestigious Italian restaurant, to a symphonic orchestra concert in their local opera house and we were able to see Graz at night in its remarkable beauty from a castle on a hill. We finished our trip with a performance in the Fux-hall of the conservatory.
