The Penthesilea audition academy was founded by Karin Bonelli, flutist of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra and is dedicated to supporting young, talented musicians on their way towards a positive audition experience. 2023 Gudrun Hinze (Solopiccolo of the Gewandhausorchester zu Leipzig) is joining the team as a flute teacher, while Roman Rindberger (Mnozil Brass, MUK Wien) remains in charge of the trumpet students and in his function as Wimhof-instructor. It offers a specific space to work on the broad orchestral repertoire, to strengthen mental and physical balance in individual and group coaching sessions, to improve “team player” qualities through ensemble work. In 2023 the academy is open to flutists and trumpet players. For more information go to www.penthesilea.academy.
