2nd Adams International Bassoon Festival

Welcome to the website for the 2nd Adams International Bassoon Festival.
On this site you will find the activities per day. Check back to this site regularly, because there are always new events are added.
In the top menu, you will find several ways to navigate through the site.
The term "program" is a summary of the program per day. There you will find a "Schedule" button. If you click here you can see a schematic overview by day and time. You can click in this scheme to the program section for more information about this part and / or the teacher who takes care of this section.
The entire festival is free. However, if you actively participate in certain events, then a subscription for this event is required.
In that case there is a link to that specific program area. When you click on it you get to the registration form there. Here you enter the desired activity, and can, if required, also pay online. You then immediately receive a receipt and a registration confirmation. This confirmation you bring to the festival and show it to the festival secretariat. There you get a badge with your name and the events for which you are registered.
Have fun on this page, and we hope to welcome you during one of the two festival days!
