In collaboration with ERPS (European Recorder Players Society) e.V., 

the Hildesheim Music School, the Michaelis Church (UNESCO World Heritage), Andreanum Hildesheim (Telemann's School), Moeck Company, 

the State Association of Lower Saxony Music Schools, and 

the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture, I realized the 

RIN (Recorder International Niedersachsen) Festival in Hildesheim in 2012. 

The festival featured an international competition, concerts, workshops, 

and an exhibition of instruments, sheet music, and CDs.

A total of 160 young people and amateurs from Lower Saxony and all over Germany participated, performing works such as 

"Häresie" by Urs Peter Schneider and a premiere by Gordon Williams. 

The plan was for RIN to move through Lower Saxony's cities every two years. Wolfenbüttel was supposed to be the next venue in collaboration with the Herzog August Bibliothek, music school, Landesmusikakademie, and the main church Beate Mariae Virgine, with a focus on Praetorius and Dieupart, among other sources in the Herzog August Bibliothek. 

However, this plan could not be realized for funding reasons.
