The Workshop-Festival  

From 23rd August till 4th September 2022, Krzyżowa
will stage its 8th season. In Krzyżowa a number of
internationally established musicians will once more
be meeting selected young promising musicians
of Europe’s classical music scene.

The Faculty of Seniors interacting with the Juniors, will be a creative melting pot of long experience and unpretentious approach. In a relaxed atmosphere with ample time to rehearse and thereby to attain a deep understanding of the pieces worked on, the musicians will develop the programmes for the Krzyżowa-Music concerts.

Which requirements should you meet when applying?

· Open-mindedness, love for music and a fresh approach

· Excellent instrumental skills with the aim of making music together

· Desire for perfection in working together with outstanding musical partners


Rising Stars: The Krzyżowa-Music Juniors 

Krzyżowa-Music invites more than 38 carefully selected aspiring musicians (Juniors) to spend two to three summer weeks in the rural seclusion of Krzyżowa, together with some of the most sought-after, educationally experienced musicians (Seniors) from around the world. In a casual yet concentrated atmosphere, they work together, learn together, share their generational experiences as well as perform together.


Time period

The Krzyżowa-Music Workshop will take place for the seventh time from 23rd August till 4th September 2022 with summer concerts in Lower Silesia. In September, selected participants of the workshop will start a Late-Summer Tour through Poland and Germany.


Selection of Juniors

Juniors will be selected by a jury of Seniors after their application. A repeated participation in the festival will be possible for high promising Juniors. Very experienced Juniors will be able to participate as Mentors, receiving special assignments. For a trouble-free participance, all Juniors will be provided with scholarships.



We look forward to receiving applications from musicians up to the age of 30. The requirements for Krzyżowa-Music Juniors should be fulfilled.

For the upcoming season, we have openings for oboe and clarinet. 

Due to the corona pandemic, we could not consider all applicants for the last season, so that we have postponed their invitations to the coming summer. Therefore we unfortunately have no vacancies for pianists and string instrumentalists this year, but we look forward to receiving your applications in the coming winter.

Sound Samples

Interested musicians should submit two contrasting works to their application. The application should include at least one work from the classical period (Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert).

Applications for the season 2023
