Toppenkurset Online

Toppenkurset is happy to announce that we can invite to an online and international music course in November 2020! With great support from the Barents Secretariat we can invite young musicians from Russia, Norway and other countries to “Toppenkurset Online”. 

We will offer individual lessons, chamber music lessons and conducting classes, through online platforms, with teachers from the Toppenkurset collegium. On November 8th and 29th, the participants will meet for online conferences on orchestra development, social relations and networking across borders. And to still manage to play together, we will make a “Quarantine orchestra” video with all participants, which will be presented on Toppenkurset Online’s last day. 

Toppenkurset Online is free of charge for all participants. As a participant, one takes part in all activities of the course, both the lessons, the conference and the video. 

In these difficult times, we are grateful that we can manage to still make music together, and strengthen the friendships and connections between musicians in different countries.
