More about the Conference and Registration  

The registration for the Lyre Conference 2018 is now open,
we hope to welcome you all to Zeist!

The theme of this year’s conference will be:
Space… Listening – Moving – Exploring

Each morning we will start with a plenum with movement and improvisation, after this there will be many interesting workshops to follow in the morning and in the afternoon. At the end of every afternoon there is room for free initiatives and an open stage. The evenings promise to be beautiful with concerts, a lecture and an evening on which we all will play a new piece, composed for this event!
The registration will be open until July 1. 2018.
Early-bird discount is available until April 1.
Cancellations until June 1 will receive full refund, there is no refund for cancellations after this date.
The Lyre Pedagogical Conference will take place the weekend before the main conference, July 20 - July 22.

At the pedagogy conference there will be the opportunity to share experiences regarding teaching the lyre. We will work with the theme of life processes and their relationship with the learning processes.

There will be a Youth Lyre Conference at the same time as the main conference for youth between the ages 12 and 21. They will participate in the plenum and then have their own program with a morning workshop and afternoon excursions.

During the afternoon there will be the possibility for all kind of initiatives. There will be room to play (together), to perform, to talk, to listen. Did you work on something in the last 3 years, which you want to share? Come and show it!

There will be an open stage, opportunity to give a small demonstration or workshop, masterclasses... It will be like an open market. You can already tell us your initiative by sending an e-mail (see Contact-page).

There will also be room for spontaneous initiatives. Marijke Vreeken will be there every afternoon and you will be able to register at the moment. Every day, the afternoon's initiatives will be shown on a large blackboard.

The lyres at the conference will be tuned at 432 Hz.
