Traveling for international guests:
Stuttgart’s health department confirmed that you can enter Germany and come to Stuttgart without quaranteen if you come from a high-incidental area such as France or Italy (This option does NOT apply for people traveling out of a covid-mutation-area!)
To enter Germany you need to provide:
- a negative PCR-Test (not older than 48 h)
- online registration before entering Germany via https://www.einreiseanmeldung.de
- a document which confirms your participation at the ACADEMY -We will soon again reach out to the participants which need to provide such documents at borders in order to customize the data.
Should I prepare a solo piece?
Yes, we would like you to prepare at least one solo piece (Marimba or Vibra or Snare, ... ) AND a Snare-Drum Etude. This way we will have a better opportunity to work together on details. But also a pure orchestral audition program is a great base to work on. Don't worry!
Should I bring instruments?
If possible, bring a Snare Drum and a stand. We also recommend that you bring your own Tambourines.
