The Summer Guitar Festival has been organised in Krzyzowa since 2000. The event features classical guitar workshops (conducted by the most eminent teachers and virtuosos from Poland and abroad), workshops on the acoustic (including also fingerstyle guitars), electric, jazz, bass, flamenco, flamenco guitars, as well as… flamenco dance. DVD presentations, lectures and exhibitions of guitars and music accessories have always been part of the programme of the Festival.
The guests of this year’s course will include several masters of international standing: Łukasz Kuropaczewski, Marcin Dylla, Krzysztof Pełech, Antonello Lixi, Andrea Vettoretti.
In the evenings, the teachers and participants of the workshops will meet in Piwnica Dzemowa (Jam Session in the basement of the Palace). It is a paradise for joint playing, perfecting the art of improvisation and… creating in general. The scene in the Palace is open for everyone, regardless of their age or abilities. Always under control of responsible supervisors!
The Summer Guitar Festival in Krzyzowa is targeted at everybody — professionals and amateurs, beginners and the advanced, primary school and university students. There is no age limit. It is a place for both active go-getters — future virtuosos, and lazy fans — spectators.
|Festival Dates||July 26 - August 3, 2013|
