Events Description

Held in the beautiful lakeside town of Weggis, Switzerland, this 10-day festival offers flautists of all abilities the chance to participate in a wonderfully supportive environment with Sir James Galway and other world-renowned artists.

Each day begins with warm-ups led by Sir James, focussing 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 flautists and an Opening Gala Concert with Sir James and Lady Galway.

Throughout the week, they will have a large array of beautiful instruments on display for you to play and enjoy, thanks to the many flutemakers who support the festival. Thanks to their generosity, the festival is able to offer special prizes to deserving students. These prizes include handmade head joints, piccolos and flutes.

All classes are open to all students and music lovers. Classes and recitals will all be live-streamed on Facebook.
