Final Concert of the Flute Academy at Kulturhaus Fiss
Musical side programme
The musical side of the social programme begins with the instructors’ opening concert, to which participants enjoy free admission. Students will perform two concerts towards the end of the Academy at which all active participants can perform extracts from their prepared repertory.
This year’s E.F.Fiss will once again be accompanied by workshops and flute exhibitions with flute makers from across the world. Furthermore, a diagnosis and repair workshop will be hold which have aroused lively interest in recent years.
Breathing and movement techniques
E. F. Fiss also offers a specific breathing and exercise training programme which has been extremely well received by previous students. The aim is to relieve unnecessary tension and blockages and find new sequences of movement that impact positively on resonance, sound quality, fluency and the ability to deal with stage fright. Furthermore every day starts with a morning Tai Chi for everyone.
