Summer travels 2018

After a complete time of silence of this website we are now going to try to keep it up to date!
As Glenn’s latest post says it’s now time to talk about an even busier summer.

This year Glenn saw his summer travels extended over June-July and August.
The early summer season started in the Netherlands as Glenn had a tour through the Netherlands and Belgium for Musik Meyer Benelux. The goal was to show his new signature model the GVL Cardinal euphonium made by Geneva musical instruments and this by masterclasses all over the BeNe(Lux)

As you can see on Glenn’s social media he is starting to conduct more and more. Besides still having lessons from his mentor David King, Glenn is always looking to improve so he attended the Allan Withington Conducting Summer School in Leeuwarden. Here Glenn,alongside 9 other conductors from all over Europe has been working with Soli Brass.

Off to Switzerland than for a week at the great Samedan Brass Week. A record of 14 euphonium students from Switzerland, Portugal, Italy, Belgium and the USA attended a weeks worth of classes with Thomas Ruedi, David Childs and Glenn himself. It’s worth mentioning that the winner and the runner up of the Lieksa Brass competition have been following lessons on the repertoire with these three excellent tutors.

For the second half of July Glenn than travelled to Thailand where he was a guest at the Brass Festival 2018 in the Kasetsart University. Here Glenn has given two masterclasses as well as a chamber music clinic and performed with ‘The Green Brass Band’

Another three summer schools to go before the finale break with family. From Thailand straight to France to give two masterclasses and a short recital at the ‘Académie de cuivres et percussion de Larmor Plage’ in the Brittany region of France.

Than off to another summer school with his students in the Swiss Alps for the fanfare band ‘Ancienne Cécilia de Chermignon’ and straight on to another week in Trakai.
