As many of you know, my favourite week of the summer is spent at the Fanfare Week course in Trakai, Lithuania.
Here everyone can enjoy a week of concerts, rehearsals, masterclasses and ensemble sessions in the most idyllic setting by a lake with a medieval castle. I would invite any brass players to come this year, from 1-7 August.
Please visit the website of Fanfare Week. Here you can see photos and images from past summers. Also here is the application form for this year's event. It's not too expensive. You fly to Vilnius, and then Trakai is only about 30 minutes from here. Once there, you are in a different world !!
Guest conductor this year will be Luc Vertommen.
It's an amazing week...you must experience it for yourself....hope to see you there.
