Norddeutsche Oboentage 2022

28 aug - 2 sept 2022 | Academy of music Lower Saxony - Wolfenbüttel

Unfortunately, the Norddeutsche Oboentage 2022 have been cancelled. All information for 2023 will be available soon!


The Norddeutsche Oboentage will take place for the third time from August 28 till September 2nd 2022. This master class offers conservatory students and pupils the opportunity to work with renowned professors and teachers in a relaxed environment where they can develop their skills, receive advice and motivation for their continued studies, as well as interact with other course participants.

The course does not exclusively focus on private lessons, but rather on audition training and ensemble playing. In addition to studying audition excerpts, students will participate in simulated “trial” auditions. This is a useful exercise to gain experience and to learn how to combat anxiety in an audition scenario. During the lessons it is also possible to take piano rehearsals with Kimiko Imani, reed making with Thamar Wahlberg and individual and group lessons for Alexander technique and mental coaching with Stephanie Lichtmeß.

During the course a number of oboe makers, wood handlers, accessory merchants, music publishers and reed machine sellers will be exhibiting their instruments and products in Wolfenbüttel. Students will have the chance to try out, compare and exchange ideas on various instruments and merchandise.

On the last evening there will be a public farewell concert featuring solo and ensemble pieces.
