Thanks to PatH for arranging this EPP at such a fantastic location. Unfortunately, I cannot yet say if I will be able to attend. September is a long way off, I am not yet retired and as a freelance worker I don't know what lies waiting down the line. At the moment, it is possible, but I might well receive mandates in the course of the year that involve seminars on Saturdays when the companies' staff aren't working. I will be watching this thread and decide later.

Nice to see people coming! smile

The location is not too far from the airport Frankfurt (FRA). By train from FRA, it's about 2 hours of travelling to St.Goar; changing trains at least once.
Other possible airports are Frankfurt-Hahn (an airport popular with low cost airlines), or Köln/Bonn. But I don't know how many planes go there, and how the train/bus connections are.


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

I uploaded two pictures of the academy. One from the outside; the other from the piano room.
http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/galleries/2701547/epp-2018-location.html

(About uploading pictures: Do the descriptions in this thread still match reality?)

NOTE: In the academy, there are two small dogs. They seem to be well behaved; but I am mentioning this in case someone has a dog allergy or something.

Pat - the pictures look great - It seems like we're in someone's (rather elegant) drawing room !

As for your question:
Originally Posted by patH

the instructions are a bit off - but if you upload your pictures to a new gallery, and then right click on the image, you can copy the link location and then paste it into your thread - you need to put [ img ] at the beginning of the link and [ /img] at the end - (no spaces inside the [ ] ) .

As for the dogs- thanks for the heads up. I have a mild allergy to dogs (cats are worse) - but if they don't spend much time with us in the room , and if I don't touch them, I should be ok. I'll bring my puffer just in case!

I'm really excited that we've got bookings rolling so well already!

Are any of you planning extended trips and thinking about a river cruise or visiting interesting piano/music places at all?
I will stay in Europe and meet up with hubby in Oct so have a few weeks to explore myself- anywhere really - but a river boat to Vienna and visits around there sounds wonderful. There are so many music pilgrimages to make in that part of the world! Any ideas welcomed. There have to be some 'must do's!
Piano camp? PM me if this is a bit off topic!

We're planning to do 2-3 weeks in Europe...Germany and France. That is, IF my sabbatical is approved and I can go. A music location sounds good to me.

I don't know yet if I can make it as the end Aug/Sept is when Sim will be finishing uni and we may need to sort out what's happening around that point, while I could potentially be free myself it is too early to say and I don't want to book it to find that I'm unable to attend frown

Does look great though smile

Exciting - can’t wait to meet up with you all. Anyone planning to stay over Sunday night? I am hoping to go on to Vienna for a week to explore the music heritage there.

Just wanted to say, I'm pretty much bent on coming to this party, very excited for it at least and want to do everything I can to make it. It's just me, or it looks like it.

I don't plan to stay overnight in the area. My plan is to find a hostel somewhere not too far away, and take a train or bus to the destinations of the party, if that's possible, both on Friday and Saturday. I speak a little German and can ask for directions.

Then I would presumably part with the group on Saturday night, that is, while most of the people would take the train at 23:48 to Sankt Goar, I would take the train to my place, wherever that will be.

If anybody knowledgable with the area, or Germany in general, can give me some advice, or has a reason to doubt my (not completely laid out) plan might not work out, that would be appreciated. If not, you can count me in.

Hi TheodorN - it's great that you're thinking of joining us .
I can't help you with the area, or German, but ..... I was just wondering if you had seen that the place we'll be holding the party has some fairly basic rooms that might be more convenient that staying in another town and trying to take trains late at night.

If you factor in the cost of the extra train travel, maybe it would be cost effective for you. Just a thought!

The trains from Oberwesel (where the Rhein in Flammen event is) go in exactly two directions: Koblenz and Bingen.
I don't know if there are any youth hostels in the region you can book.

Thank you casinitaly and patH.

I only noticed about the possibility to stay at the Academy for 40€, after I sent my first post, and I've sent a PM to patH, that I want to stay there Friday, and Saturday night. It's even a bit under what I wanted to spend on accommodation, so it's great.

Look forward to the party, and the interesting program that has been put together. Never been to Germany, that I can say, except a few weeks ago, when I was on a visit close to the Danish-German border, and we took a short trip to the neighbouring border towns and Flensburg.

Honestly this would be a massive undertaking - with two high school kids and their summer plans I just don't think it would be possible to escape for a quick trip across the ocean. Have a wonderful time and thank you for extending the invitation!

Look, if you don't take a European trip, you are completely denying your kids the opportunity for a booze-laden weekend party with 100 other drunk teenagers. This is a rite of passage in American pop culture... or it was. Please respect traditions.

Lol sounds like the right move to me! First though is an Alaskan cruise with my extended family (I'm not really into going on a boat with 5,000 or so strangers and have been putting this off for years but I cannot delay it any further), a teen tour for my daughter, an internship in LA for my son, and there goes the time and budget. Maybe next summer smile.

I wish you a great time with your family, and hopefully it might work out for a piano party in 2019. Wherever it might be. wink

Another subject that was brought up via PM: The "Rhein in Flammen" event is not a must part of the event. People who do not wish to go on a ship don't have to. The fee would then be lower.
But I think it would be nice if as many people as possible from the EPP went to the Rhein in Flammen. It would be a nice ending for the party day.
But I respect if people get seasick easily, or are afraid of the water.

Just confirm until May if you wish to participate on the "Rhein in Flammen", so that the correct number of tickets can be ordered.

Thanks for the update patH!
I hope most of the group will feel up to the boat event.
You can mark Mr casinitaly and myself as confirmed for it.
A nighttime cruise AND fireworks?!!! With our PW friends?
We wouldn’t miss it for the world!

Thanks for the update. I'll get a confirmation from my work on the summer vacation I've asked for, at the end of this month. If I get the weeks off I've asked for, I'm in, and I want to participate in all that is included. Just like casinitaly, I'm especially looking forward to the Rhein in Flammen sailing. I can't imagine the waters get that rough on the Rhein, but if they will, I come from a long line of Icelandic sailors, and I demand of myself, that I'll be able to take it. cool

You can add GMajor (Mr. SwissMS)and me to the confirmed list for the Rhein in Flamen cruise. It sounds like great fun!

Really looking forward to joining in on all that you have planned, including the boat trip! Thank you for putting out all the effort of organizing this. I’m thrilleda to be included. I’m polishing up a piece or two but will be so apprehensive about playing for you all.....

Hello all!

First of all thank you patH for adding me to the list! We originally planned vacation in the middle of summer but my wife recently injured her knee and became not really mobile. September 7th is 5 month far from now and I really hope she will recover much sooner smile Also we have national holidays on the week starting September 9th so I currently see it as a very good chance for us to have vacation in that time and attend this event.

Now, I want to apologize for that doubt about boat trip that came from me frown So let me clarify that:
We both have grown in the city by the sea, my wife's father was naval officer and my father supervised shipbuilding plant. When I was young I played water polo and also participated in a maritime campaign as a cabin boy... you got the idea - water and ships are sitting deeply in our mentality. We are trying to take a ship trip whenever it is possible...
Unfortunately where I am working now my vacation cannot be confirmed until very last weeks before desired dates (even with national holidays that don't cover all days in that week). That's the only reason why I cannot confirm our participation by end of May and I don't want to put that ticket reservation under risk... If we will be there we'll definitely want to get to the ship also, but if my vacation will be cancelled then we won't come at all... But as I understand ship reservations must be final soon...
So unfortunately at this moment I can only be optional participant of the main piano event smile

I am hoping to spend a week in Vienna after this. I have been looking at all sorts of things to do there. Any advice appreciated. Maybe I should ask you to PM me since it is a bit of a side track to the thread! Thinking of Hotel Beethoven, and all sorts of music events. Have to follow in so many footsteps of The Greats who spent time there!
