The Jersey International Masterclasses is a summer music course based at the academy, and this year 22 students from England, Spain, France, Belgium, and Jersey participated in a full week of tuition and concerts.
The course is linked with Royal College of Music, and the teaching faculty is coordinated by Viktoria Grigoreva (RCM Junior Department), and Mark Messenger (Head of Strings, RCM). The full course information and faculty can be seen at the website – www.jerseymasterclasses.com.

The course culminated in a concert at St Helier Town Hall, and an evening performance in the beautiful courtyard at Jersey Zoo as part of the ‘Durrell At Dusk’ event on Friday 4th August:
Our congratulations go to all the visiting and local students for delivering such memorable performances, and we are looking forward greatly to next year’s Jersey International Masterclasses.
