registration is now open for the 2018 galway flute festival in weggis, switzerland!
Our 2017 Festival included students from 22 countries, ranging in age from 16-68 with 12 MILLION hits through our Facebook Livestream! We hope you will come and be a part of our 2018 Galway Flute Festival in Weggis!
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, 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!
