About the ensemble weekend

The main theme for this year’s ensemble weekend will be soundtracks and the guitar! We all know great movies like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Shrek, but what would they be without their soundtracks? The soundtracks of several movies will be arranged for guitar orchestra, especially for this Ensemble Weekend! Of course we will take different playing levels in account, so there will be a suitable part for everyone. The music will be rehearsed during the weekend and also one (Saturday-) morning in the weekend prior to the festival / ensemble weekend. We will perform the music during a concert at the ArtEZ School of Music.

But there’s more...
Here's a list of all the activities during the weekend:
Workshops hand/bodypercussion
Master classes for small ensembles
A Guitar Fair with guitar builders, sheet music and guitar accessories
Showcase concerts by young guitarists
A Guitar Hero contest

For whom is the weekend intended?
  • For enthusiastic guitarists who enjoy playing together.
  • For guitar duos, trios, quartets and mixed ensembles.
  • There will also be a children’s group for children between the age of 8 and 12 years old.
Private tutors and music-school teachers will coach the ensembles.

Participation costs 35 euro. This includes two lunches and the extra rehearsal on the Saturday morning prior to the festival ensemble weekend.
