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.
All applications for Sir James' class are due April 1. We recommend sending in applications for Lady Galway's class by May 1. All classes are open to all students and music lovers to observe throughout the Festival with a Visitor Pass! 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!
