In 2015 we enjoyed our biggest ever Galway Flute Festival -
over 90 students representing 22 countries!
Sir James and Lady Galway invite you to be a part of the 27th Annual Galway Flute Festival.
Held in the beautiful lakeside town of Weggis, Switzerland this 10 day Festival offers flutists of all abilities the chance to participate in a wonderfully supportive environment with the Master and other world renowned artists.
Each day begins with warm-ups led by Sir James, focusing on tone production and technique. The day continues with masterclasses given by Sir James and Lady Galway, along with Guest Artists' workshops on orchestral excerpts, chamber music, improvisation, piccolo, low flutes, contemporary techniques and more. Evenings are filled with concerts by the world's leading flutists and an Opening Gala Concert with Sir James and Lady Galway.
This year's theme "Putting it All Together" will help you connect what you are learning in each class and apply it to your performances to make them truly outstanding. These techniques have been acquired over Sir James' formative and illustrious career and helped make him the player he is today.
All classes are open to all students to observe.
We invite you to join us for an inspiring week filled with picturesque sights and sounds!
