Visit the unique concerts

On Friday evening 23, Saturday evening 24 and Sunday evening August 25, 2019, the coaches and their very talented students will give concerts in the cozy church of Grolloo. Different styles of music pass by. You will hear what is possible on the flute and of course on the flutes made in Grolloo by Eva Kingma. The entrance fee is € 10.00 and this benefits, among other things, the church and the village house. The start is at 8 p.m. Unfortunately, reservation is not possible.

Spiral Lament - poem by Demi Stevens

With a little help from Jan Schamper

I peek out of my shell
The sun warms my nose
And I wiggle with joy

A bird soars high above me
Oh, to soar!

In my dreams I am brave
Waving my flag in the face of danger
And dancing away at the last moment

Oh, to dance!
Oh, to soar!

But this is not my path
Trudging. Grounded. Anchored

Yet still I dream
Of escaping
To grow to the light of the sunbeam
That makes the past, present and future
A moment of eternity.


Want to experience a Masterclass?


Open masterclasses in Markehuis Grolloo from 11 am to 12.30 pm and from 2 pm to 3.30 pm and from 4 pm to 5.30 pm every day from 21 up to and including 24 August. You are welcome during the masterclasses. At least when you can be present in silence, because lessons will of course be given. It is a special experience to see how young people learn to discover the possibilities of their instrument in addition to a normal music lesson. How you make music and the quality of it not only determine a performance. Appearance, your presentation, is equally important. Attention will be paid to these aspects and more during the sessions. The breaks are for the students and the coaches and they desperately need them.

The Sessions

Matthias Ziegler, Ian Clarke and Wissam Boustany present an innovative flute course, with the support of Tim Carey, Kamelia Miladinova and Eva Kingma.

The Grolloo team has high priority in creating a welcoming spirit of learning and sharing ideas among all participants, regardless of age or skill. So far, participants have come from all over the world and have ranged from students who were about to start a music academy, graduates from leading music institutions, to professional artists and teachers.
Participants will discuss many performance and practice problems and experiment in fully interactive discussions and workshops.
The timing of the course during the late summer allows students and professionals to get back into shape for the new musical season.
