The academy worked in partnership with Royal College of Music to bring together the third Jersey International Masterclasses, featuring outstanding music students from all over the UK and worldwide led by a team of internationally recognised professors. This year’s teaching faculty included Leonid Margarius (piano ), Michael Kugel (viola), Mark Messenger (violin), Viktoria Grigoreva (violin), Maria Taracewicz (piano), among others. Concerts took place at various places, including a dramatic concert in the Medieval Great Hall at Mont Orgueil Castle, pictured here:
Local young musicians had the opportunity to participate in a weekend of workshops led by Mark Messenger, leading to a concert at the end for all to perform.
Our thanks go to the One Foundation for their sponsorship in enabling the Under-18 programme to take place. Plans are in motion for next year’s Jersey International Masterclasses.
