It is with sadness that we have decided to radically reduce Hellensmusic this year because of the pandemic and all the safety regulations in place. However, we are not abandoning our Hellensmusic.
After careful planning, we have organised a masterclass course for a limited number of students and professors resident in the UK – following all health regulations. This because we believe it essential to continue working with the future musical generations, and to celebrate, even in a small way, our commitment to music.
We are excited to welcome this year an exceptional team of UK based professionals who will be teaching a group of students from May 11th to 16th. These are:
Tom Poster (piano), Maya Iwabuchi (violin), Laura Samuel (violin), Lawrence Power (viola), and Alice Neary (cello)
We shall be recording some of these classes and hopefully able to show them online in the near future.
It is thanks to you and your continuing support that we are able to provide these masterclasses even in such challenging times.
We will be welcoming you with open arms again next spring, for a full festival. Music rocks!
Affectionate greetings from
Adam and the HELLENSMUSIC team.
