Welcome at Twents Gitaarfestival 2019
The Twente guitar festival 2019 will be a memorable edition that will be presented with pride and nostalgia. With great sadness, we have had to say goodbye to Sabrina Vlaskalic in the past few weeks. She stood at the cradle of her career when she won nearly any guitar-competition across Europe, including our own Kai’s Guitarstore competition. Also this year she should have been one of the guitar greats who would come to strengthen our festival. The planning of a memorial ceremony will take shape in advance to the festival.
However, there is also insanely good news for guitar lovers in the Netherlands: The legendary duo Assad will give a concert in Enschede on 1 June. As ambassadors of the Eurostrings platform they will give 8 public masterclasses to the Eurostrings artists who come to visit our festival. The ticket sale for the concert will start soon, so it is advisable to follow our website and social media channels because the tickets are expected to be rare.
On Sunday 2 June, the Twents Guitar Festival will join forces with the Cultural Sunday, Music in the Streets and the Week of Amateur Art. With a Fingerstyle competition in the city center and an interactive guitar market in the big church on the old market, the guitar festival offers an ideal family outing for young and old. Get in touch with real guitar builders, and see with your own eyes how a guitar is made. For the advanced guitar lovers Raymond Nijenhuis will give a glimpse into his unique collection of Harmony guitars and give a lecture about them.
Our Eurostrings Artists will give concerts distributed over the Euregio of absolute world level. Among others in Markelo, Gronau and Ahaus classical guitar concerts will be organized by the Twents Guitar Festival. We will keep you informed!
There are also many other activities going on at the Twents Guitar Festival. Concerts, a festival orchestra for beginning and amateur guitarists of all ages, different workshops, the outdoor stage on the old market on Ascension Day.
We hope to welcome everyone in the Ascension weekend!
