Additional information for applying to the saxophone class:

Additional information for applying to the voice class:

In addition to the registration form a demo-recording has to be supplied. All participants selected will have to prepare specific works for an audition directly at the beginning of the Academy including also a solo piece (pieces will be named later on depending also on the person registrating). This audition will help clarify the distribution of parts/literature to be studied by the participants during impuls. Please be aware that not all participants will have the chance to actually perform in public in the end and that especially for the ensemble pieces a selection will have to be made. 




Participants must take care of, reserve, book and pay for their accommodation and travels themselves! Rooms and various sleeping-possibilities are offered at special rates for impuls participants in Graz however (have a look at Jugend & Familiengästehaus JUFA Graz City). Please check your accommodation if needed as soon as possible upon receipt of acceptance for impuls 2017 and contact JUFA directly (please make sure you mention being part of impuls 2017 to get the special impuls rates there).
