CALLING ALL ALUMNI!
In preparation for our 30th Anniversary of the Galway Flute Festival in 2019, we would like to compile of list of the hundreds of flutists who have been a part of our Festival since the beginning!
If you have attended the Galway Flute Festival, Masterclass or Residency, please let us know!
Fill out the short form and we will keep you informed of plans for the 30th Anniversary Galway Flute Festival! It would mean so much to have as many of you there with us as possible!
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, jazz 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.
Throughout the week we will have a large array of beautiful instruments on display for you to play and enjoy, thanks to the many flutemakers who support our Festival. Thanks to their generosity, we are fortunate to be able to offer special prizes to deserving students at the end of the Festival. These prizes include handmade head joints, piccolos and flutes!
All classes are open to all students and music lovers to observe throughout the Festival. Classes and recitals will all be live-streamed on Facebook!
We invite you to join us for an inspiring week filled with picturesque sights and sounds, taught by the Master and his friends!
