ANDREAS FESTNER

Orchestra Director and 1st Clarinet

For me, art reflects the culture of a society. Hence - To every age its art – to art its freedom.

I have been closely linked with the Bad Hall orchestra as a clarinettist since 1993. The perspective Festival KLANGBADHALL gives me the opportunity to gather a pool of outstanding musicians in Bad Hall, thereby. Thus, I am very happy to assist the city of Bad Hall and festival director Ernst Theis in establishing Bad Hall as festival city within the Austrian musical landscape.

Kunst ist ein Ausdrucksmittel, das jedem Menschen, unabhängig von seiner Herkunft, seinem Hintergrund oder seinem Wissensstand, zur Verfügung steht. Kunst verbindet, eröffnet, bereichert, berührt und bewegt.
