Our first educational trip of the academic year to Gyumri! On September 22, 2023, Maximilian Simon, an accomplished soloist, chamber musician, and deputy section leader of the 2nd violins at the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Vladimir Jurowski conducted masterclasses for young Armenian violinists in Gyumri.
Four talented violinists took part in the masterclasses, performed Mozart, Viotti and Bach.
Following the masterclasses, Maximilian hosted an engaging round table discussion bringing together teachers and students to discuss the current situation in Gyumri. Maximilian Simon also shared his invaluable experiences and answered questions from both teachers and students.
Big thanks to the Gyumri Branch of Yerevan Komitas State Conservatory for your support and for making this day possible!
