Watch some video footage from the 2015 edition

Some quotes by our participants

“Meeting and improving together!” (China, student)

“An invaluable opportunity to work with some of the greatest flutists of today in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.” (UK, student)

“An exciting week of music with great players and teachers from all over the world.” (Italy, Erasmus student)

“The Grolloo Flute Sessions has been a super good experience. The concert that we listen there from the teachers it was something magic, the people from this village is super nice and you could feel during the whole session very good energy!” (Belgium/Spain, student)

“The teachers at the Grolloo Flute Session not only help you to make wings, they encourage and inspire you to fly.” (Netherlands, student)

“I found the Grolloo Flute Session an incredibly inspiring experience. It allowed me to discover my strengths and weaknesses as a performer, open up to new ideas in my performance (breathing, warm up, extended techniques which were completely new to me) and collaborate with players from all around the world. Having the opportunity to watch my performance in a masterclass immediately after, have time to absorb this and only then discuss it all as a group was definitely a useful one. It meant that I could objectively consider the good and bad in my performance and perhaps realise than how you feel straight after a performance does not necessarily reflect how it went!! Definitely the highlight of my summer. Thank you! I can’t wait for next year… :)” Israel, student

“Very inspiring, i’ve learned so many new things. I got to know lovely people!” Swiss, Student

“I look back on my time at Grolloo with absolute fondness. It was easily one of the best times I’ve had making music, with all of the very talented and creative musicians here at this festival. The instructors were also amazing, each with their own unique specialties and ideas to share with us. There is nothing quite like this experience. Not only are you constantly learning, but you are also being immersed in the beautiful nature surrounding Grolloo, having intimate house concerts with the generous and supportive townspeople of Grolloo, and working with some of the kindest, down-to-earth musicians you’ll ever meet.” USA, student
