ClarinetFest® 2018 - Ostend July 6-11

This article was posted on 1 Jul 2018.

ClarinetFest® 2018 will take place in the beautiful city of Ostend, Belgium, July 6-11 2018. Artistic Director Eddy Vanoosthuyse will be assisted by the family of the late Guido Six (Chantal, Bert and Gaby). The annual International Clarinet Association-conference is presented in partnership with the City of Ostend.

There will be performances by the Brussels Philharmonic and the Brussels Jazz Orchestra. Both orchestras recorded the soundtrack of the movie The Artist. Also appearing are the Band of the Royal Guides, the Royal Navy Band, the Flemish Chamber Philharmony amongst others.

There will be an extra concert by the Brussels Philharmonic with Academy Award winner Nicola Piovani (La Vita è Bella), conducting his film music and the world premiere of his clarinet concerto.

Next to hosting some of the biggest stars (see below), we will also give an opportunity to young (and very young) talent.

Clarinet choirs from around the world are welcome to participate in the 1st International Guido Six Clarinet Choir Festival. One of the highlights will be one of Guido’s last arrangements for clarinet choir and organ, performed in the neogothic Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in Ostend.

For more information see the ClarinetFest® 2018 website.
