14th Summer course for young flutists in Tuscany

Due to the Corona pandemic, last year’s (our13th) summer course had to be cancelled. Filled with hope, 2021 makes us turn the page, and with unrelenting enthusiasm, we now announce our 14th summer course for young flute players.
The course is aimed at young professionals, and professional students, but also to amateurs with professional aspirations.

Participants need to organize their own hotel accommodation. Albergo Roma in Buonconvento, fully refurbished recently and close to the train station, is an affordable place for students to stay and eat. Please state that you are participating in the course. Sharing a room doesn’t always mean that the price for a night is cheaper. Please ask the hotel owner.
There are also other possibilities in the village, e.g.

Hotel Ghibellino or private rooms. Hotel Ghibellino offers half (or full) pension with good Tuscan meals served in collaboration with nearby Albergo Roma. Ask for half- (mezza pensione) or full (pensione complete) pension.
