For those who haven't already heard:

Dear Zither Friends,
December 8, 2018

We are excited to announce the 2019 International Zither Gathering (IZG) to be held in Königswinter, Germany (near Bonn, the former capital of Germany). This event will be from March 26 – 31, 2019, and is being organized by Anne Prinz (USA) and Tomy Temerson (Germany).
This is an opportunity for new and seasoned zither players to come together to share their passion, learn new techniques and enjoy the camaraderie of sharing zither music with each other in our international zither community.
Tomy Temerson will provide brand new sheet music, especially arranged for this event by Mr. Gernot Sauter. This includes various periods of music, such as - Folk, Romantic, Classical, etc. Two months prior to the Gathering, Tomy will provide a professional practice recording from his sound studio.
For many years we have been working together to create seminars around the world to encourage the growth of the zither and to bring together zither enthusiasts to learn and create community through sharing our love of the zither. Now we want to invite you to come together with a larger zither community, in the country where zither music has its origin. We have put a lot of love and care in drawing together people from all over the world to share their passion for the zither. We are eagerly anticipating parti- cipants from Austria, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, USA, etc.
