Mandolin Workshop with Avi Avital

In the year of the mandolin, we invite mandolin players from the age of 18, beginners with at least two years of playing experience, amateurs, semi-professionals, students and anyone who enjoys playing their instrument to become part of the largest mandolin ensemble in Schleswig-Holstein. In six intensive rehearsal days, a colorful program will be rehearsed under the direction of Avi Avital and other experts in plucked instruments. In order to be able to put together a strong-sounding mandolin orchestra, we are also looking for people playing the guitar, mandola, mandoloncello and double bass, who will enrich the workshop with the timbres of their instruments.
