Default Boxwood Australia & New Zealand

Hi all,

Just a quick note to bring to your attention the Boxwood Festivals, in particular the two in Australia & New Zealand coming up soon. I believe there are still a couple of places for smallpipe players (among other instruments) at both of the main weekend gatherings. See further below for more information and the complete listing of events!

-AUSTRALIA-
"Boxwood Australia is a magical experience with very limited enrollment and small class sizes, so please register early. Our venues for classes include the historic Whitehall Guesthouse, the Old Pilot House, St. Georges Church, the Old School House and Queenscliff Town Hall, all in the heart of Queenscliff just a short stroll to the waterfront. While the weekend in Queenscliff emphasizes the fiddle, flutes, whistles, harps & smallpipes, the program will suit those with basic playing experience and up, will cater to a wide range of ability and is designed to challenge as well as inspire."

-AOTEAROA/NEW ZEALAND-
"Join us in beautiful & historic Waipu, New Zealand for five days of musical discovery and fun with Catherine McEvoy – flute & whistle, Rob Zielinski – Irish fiddle, Chris Norman (flutes, whistlesmall pipes & chef). Boxwood New Zealand is a magical experience with very limited enrollment and small class sizes, so please register early. Our venue for classes, CraigDhu, is located a few miles from Waipu on a majestic headland overlooking Bream Bay; huge thanks to the Craig Family. We’ll be coordinating rides from the Auckland Airport, and there are lots of lodging optons in the village of Waipu. Students attend classes daily (Friday-Tuesday.) and are encouraged to spend time with each teacher during the course of the week with the aim of discovering connections between oral traditions, expanding musical vocabulary, learning new techniques, broadening their sense of the instrument, and enabling them to find their own musical voice. The evenings will be filled with social gatherings that include excellent meals, concerts, informal gatherings and sessions of music-making with students and teachers alike. The week in Waipu will emphasize the fiddle, flutes, whistles & pipes. The course will suit those with basic playing experience, will cater to a wide range of ability and is designed to challenge as well as inspire."
