Welcome to Nordic Piccolo Festival

We are very honored to introduce the second edition of Nordic Piccolo Festival to be held the 9th – 12th of March 2023.
Here you’ll find all the relevant information about the festival

Every morning at the festival there will be a joint warm-up session, where one of the guest artists will share their warm-up routines and experiences with the piccolo.

The warm-up class is a good way to start the day. Here you will meet all the participants and teachers and you will together set a positive mood for the rest of the day.

At the masterclasses you’ll have the opportunity to get lessons with some of the best piccolo players in the world.
In March 2023 we are honored to be hosting some of the best piccolo players in the world:

Nicola Mazzanti  –  Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra
Natalie Schwaabe  – The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
Trond Magne   –  Oslo Philharmonic
Ida Marie Sørmo  –  Aalborg Symphony Orchestra
Tina Ljungkvist  –  Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra

The masterclasses will be held at the same time, and you will have the opportunity to organize your own lessons as well as which lessons you’d like to observe, based on your own individual wishes and needs.

The workshops and lectures provides the opportunity to research and immerse oneself in topics that often doesn’t get prioritized, because of a lack of time in normal piccolo lessons. This could include breathing, body posture and awareness or maintenance of the instrument. In 2023 we will present you the following workshops:
