Eight month ahead of its scheduled beginning we can already now confirm our Symphonic Holiday taking place in Cefalù from 11th – 20th October 2019.

There are still vacancies for this Symphonic Holiday! Is a place available also for your instrument? Please proceed to the Cefalù-page with all details about this Symphonic Holiday and find up-to-date information on missing or already occupied instruments by clicking on the tab „Orchestra & Team“.
