Festival Description

The Summer Guitar Workshop has been organised in Krzyżowa since 2001. The event comprises individual lessons as well as group workshops in the scope of the classical guitar, jazz guitar, flamenco guitar and finger style. The regular items on the programme are also DVD presentations, lectures and exhibitions of guitars and music accessories, as well as concerts of the invited guests. In the evenings the teachers and workshop participants meet in the “Jam Basement” in the Palace. This is a paradise for joint music sessions, perfecting the art of improvisation and… generally acts of creation. The stage at the Palace is available to everybody, every evening, regardless of their age and skills.

The Workshop is intended for everyone – professionals and amateurs, beginners and advanced players, primary school pupils and university students. There is no age limit. Both active busy bees – future virtuosos and lazy onlookers – observers are welcome here.

The Host of the Summer Guitar Workshop is the International Youth Meeting Place/Międzynarodowy Dom Spotkań Młodzieży. The participants are free to use a WiFi network (free of charge), as well as a gym, table tennis, table football, football pitch and a playground for children. For an extra charge, there is billiards and a sauna.

Festival Story:

The Summer Guitar Festival is hosted by the International Teenagers’ Meeting House. The Palace, Stables, Cowshed, Barn, Granary, Gate-house, Wash-house, Carriage House, Gardener’s House… At present, only the Palace represents its original status, the auxiliary buildings only retained their names. The former residence of the Graf von Moltke family is now a modern and excellently managed conference centre with stylish accommodation, a set of richly ornamented seminar rooms, a concert room and a canteen. Guests of the Teenagers’ Meeting House may also use a sports hall, a gym, a sauna, ping-pong tables, a pool table and a football pitch (football matches belong to the tradition of the competition) and a playground for children. The Summer Guitar Festival in Krzyzowa has many advantages: perfect location, accommodation and catering, a safe car park, a rich educational and artistic programme.
