Attention String Players

Next year, in a beautiful setting: Between the 8th and 15th April, 2007 the island of Malta will be hosting the International String Orchestra Festival.

This is a unique opportunity for talented string players from across the globe to meet in a stimulating and productive environment, attend master classes; lectures; workshops; orchestral training, and give concerts. A line up of professional artists such as Matthias Wollong (Violin), Yuko Inoue (Viola) and Mats Lidström (Violoncello) will be giving individual lectures and master classes.

There will be two daily public concerts as a showcase for students to perform solo works and chamber music. Warm spring evenings will leave ample time to explore the stunning beaches, sample local cuisine and enjoy the vibrant nightlife. During the week there will be a trip to the neighbouring island of Gozo for a concert performance. The Festival will culminate with a gala concert, featuring the string orchestra at The Manoel Theatre, one of Europe’s oldest Baroque concert venues.

The cost of participation is €435 (£300) which covers all tuition fees, accommodation for 7 nights bed and breakfast basis (twin room), and receptions. There are a limited number of bursaries available.
