In February 2020 the Euphony Orchestra Project will come together in Schloss Seggau, near Graz, to work under the Baton of Daniel Geiß. This year works of Schostakowitsch and Mahler will be on the program. Together with distinguished Professors from around the globe students have the opportunity to partake in one of the most challenging and future-oriented chamber- and orchestra projects around.
Schloss Seggau, surrounded by its own meadows and woodland, it is a visible reminder of the regions long standing heritage. Resting on top of the Frauenberg the castle looks upon Leibnitz and the flood plains of the rivers Sulm and Mur. Our generous grounds include a 300 years old Episcopal wine-cellar and a boutique wine shop which sells the castles very own wines. Today the castle remains loyal to its commitment towards education and understanding serving as a convention centre open to the general public. Its refurbishment fuses modern design and architecture with a mediaeval setting allowing the castle to strive towards the future without losing its heritage.
