SOME  ECHOES:
KEN PARKER (US)
" I had a great time, and I hope that I also was able to help encourage some young (and even not-so-young) builders to take some risks and try some new/old things. I was so impressed with the level of good work and the intelligence of the staff and students.  Also it was delightful to hear so many fine players. It was a privilege to be a part of the CordeFactum!  Thank you again for inviting me." Ken Parker

PAUL FISCHER (UK) :
 "May I say how much I enjoyed my time at Corde Factum. Everyone was great and most helpful. Of the school's work I witnessed at the exhibition, I can honestly say that the standard was of the highest I have ever seen from any college, so for me the experience was refreshing and I send my congratulations to teachers and students. Please pass on my thanks and good wishes to all your colleagues for their hard work, courtesy and friendship." / Paul Fischer.

MURIEL ANDERSON (US)
"The Centrum voor Muziekinstrumentenbouw is an unique organization, and I am honored to have participated in their Cordefactum festival. This is one of the few places in the world that offers such a selection of fine instruments from renowned builders as well as student builders in an environment that the instruments can be auditioned by professional and amateur players alike in a natural acoustic setting. The workshops and concerts give inspiration for the world of the guitar, from the construction to the performance of the instrument. I sincerely hope this festival can be expanded and I look forward to participating again in the near future." // M.A.

LORENZO MICHELI (IT)
"Cordefactum" is a unique Festival of its kind: there is no other place that I have ever been to where luthiers and musicians meet and work so closely. "Cordefactum" is about making instruments and making music at the same time, the two things being so tightly connected that it becomes natural to think of them as just two sides of the same coin. The students get  two precious opportunities: they present their work to the audience that is visiting the exhibition and can try the guitars (and we have tried some incredibly fine instruments), and they have the chance to meet and listen to some of the most famous guitar makers in the world, picking up suggestions and advices that are invaluable for their future professional life. A perfect, faultless organization and a charming scenario (the lovely Kasteel d'Ursel) make the whole event a quite memorable experience. Bravi !” Lorenzo Micheli, gitarist Soloduo (IT)
