Esther Hoppe, Violin

As a 15- and 16-year-old, I got to know other young, talented musicians at Astona, whom I encountered again and again during my years of study (as well as thereafter). The weeks in Astona were filled with musical impulses for me, which were essential and indispensible for my future. I can warmly recommend Astona to all young people as a place where concentrated work takes place and where one makes contacts for life!
