Greetings for the year 2024

Dear friends and concert visitors!

A new musically fulfilling year for the Sachranger Musikforum is upon us and we have once again developed a diverse program based on our determination and passion to give young artists in Sachrang impulses for their career paths and to organize performance opportunities. The "Sachranger Harp Days" are a highlight at the beginning of our "season". The annual master class of Margit-Anna Süß (harp professor in Graz) is combined with concerts on the weekend of May 11th and 12th - a small festival.

Unfortunately, this year we have to do without the vocal master class by Helen Donath, whom we love so much. But we are very happy to welcome the wonderful and equally prominent soprano Juliane Banse, who will work with young singers in her master class for four intensive days (with a final concert).

Our "veteran" Ranger, horn player Johannes Hinterholzer, will also be back after a year's break. He will give a 4-day horn masterclass, which will of course include a final concert and possibly alphorn music from the Wildbichlalm. Finally, as every year, there will be the traditional master class for oboe together with Ramon Ortega (principal oboist of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra) and Hansjörg Schellenberger. As a special treat On the Sunday before the master class begins, the two teachers and Ramon Ortega's wife, the Israeli oboist Tamar Inbar, will give a concert with two oboes and an English horn, which will serve as the opening of our master class and at the same time motivate the oboe students.

As for the concerts, we have a few special features throughout the year: The 8 horn ensemble that was so popular last year will return with a new program. In the fall there will be an evening with music by Johann Sebastian Bach, on the 2nd of Advent there will be the traditional "Paradeisspiel", and finally at the historic year-end concert a completely new ensemble will see the light of day: the "Banda Vecchia", a group of musicians who have completed their careers in the most renowned orchestras and who, after their retirement, want to make music together with Hansjörg Schellenberger with great enthusiasm and commitment - the counterpart to all the young musicians who are otherwise supported in the same way.
Let yourself be surprised!

I would not like to forget the "Musikforum Team" around Dieter Höpfner, his wife Gabi and Uschi Havel, who support us in an exemplary voluntary way in the small village of Sachrang and make all our activities possible.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. Visit us!
Stay with us.
