Our annual music gathering in Saarwellingen was a great success. We packed the room night after night. We had many new students and some new teachers. For some of us this workshop is a very consuming and demanding job, yet a precious time. I am proud to be the art director of this project - it feels like a family gathering. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the team, Conni, Gudrun, the students, the community and the many supportive music lovers.
