End of the Academic Year 2014-2015

IMMA’s Students have made it to the end of the academic year 2014-2015.One last and very demanding tradition to fulfill: The end of year Recitals for our leaving students, in front of all their teachers and fellow students. To show what they have achieved in their 3 or 4 years with us. Best way to describe it, the title of the Berner Oberländer article after their Interlaken Classics concert: ‘Junge Virtuosen auf dem weg zur Meistershaft’. Bravo to all!!

Marvelous news for IMMA and for David Guéran! He auditioned for the job of ‘Chef d’attaque des seconds violons’ of the Orchestre Symphonique de Lucerne, and, among fierce competition, was given the job! He will start in September! A tribute to his hard work, his prize winning competitions in Lugano, Salzburg and London, and his 4 years with IMMA where he often lead the ‘Menuhin Academy Soloists’ orchestra alongside Maxim and Oleg. Bravo David, you made all of us proud at IMMA!!
