WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE!
International Music Competition BOLERO was held for the first time in 2021 and it was organized only for percussionists. Our music school was visited by over 40 competitors from twenty Slovenian and three foreign music schools, as well as an internationally recognized jury from Slovenia and Croatia. A year later, we held the competition at Dvorec Bukovje, and we added new discipline for brass players. More than 130 competitors from five countries attended our competition, which were assessed by the jury from Slovenia, Austria and Croatia .
In 2023, the young percussionists and brass players will also be joined by woodwind players, thus covering all groups of wind orchestra instruments. We once again invited carefully selected internationally established musicians to the jury, whose opinion will be welcome by every participant of the competition, their mentors and accompanists. Based on the positive experiences of our visitors in 2021 and 2022, we expect an increased number of applications for 2023, and in addition, this year the percussionists and brass players are joined by woodwind players, so we decided to move the venue of the competition to a new and larger hall in Kienhofen Castle in Muta, Slovenia.
