Bergerault Festival 2017
My good friend Jaime Fernandez and I met back in 2013, when we were both doing a project with the Qatar Philharmonic. He's percussionist at the Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid and the Plural Ensemble. We've worked together on and off over the years, and he's a brilliant musician and teacher.
Along with the people of Bergerault, Jaime is organising the very first Bergerault Festival from 16th -22nd July 2017 in Valdepenas - about 200k south of Madrid. It's a week long percussion and composition festival. He's very kindly asked me to come along for a few days to give some classes on orchestral percussion, and I can't wait!
