Royal College of Music Junior Department
November 27th 2011
A group of six students aged 8-17 from the Royal College of Music Junior Department visited the island along with their teacher, professor Viktoria Grigoreva, for a day of masterclasses and a concert. The connection with professor Grigoreva was made during the International Music Forum and Competition in Madeira, which Chris George and Emmanuelle attended as adjudicators in March 2011. Plans were discussed during the summer term, and the event took place on Sunday November 27th.
During the morning, professor Grigoreva gave tuition to three local young violinists whilst the visiting students visited Mont Orgueil Castle, and during the afternoon they gave an excellent concert, performing side by side with various academy students. The concert itself was very well attended, and our thanks go to the Jersey Arts Trust for covering most of the costs associated with the tour.
