To begin with, this blog will be a diary of my big trip this summer. We'll be gone for 5 weeks, and I'm getting rather excited, as well as a bit nervous! I have the chance of a lifetime, as I've been accepted as a participant (performer) at James Galway's international flute masterclass in Weggis, Switzerland, where he now resides. To find out more about James Galway and his amazing flute career, visit www.thegalwaynetwork.com
We will also be spending a relaxing week in Italy, and visiting friends and family in the town where I was born in Switzerland. The last week of our trip will be spent near Montreu, Switzerland, where I will attend a woodwind ensemble week with other young musicians from around the world, and learning one-on-one from Cormac Henry, principle flutist of the Liverpool Orchestra.
Questions? Feel free to ask. Hopefully soon I'll be posting updates on the happenings and preparations that go along with this trip.
