Welcome

Would you like to participate in a special musical experience? Then don't miss the 8th Hungarian Trombone Camp, which will be held in Paks from August 12 to 17, 2024.

During the week, numerous performances and public masterclasses await you, where you can discover the secrets of the trombone, improve your technique, and learn from the greatest masters. Every day there will be a joint warm-up session to harmonize with other trombonists, and a large trombone ensemble where you can play impressive pieces.

The trombone festival is not only a learning opportunity but also fun. We warmly welcome everyone to the trombone festival, whether you are a beginner or an advanced trombonist.
