ASPEN MUSIC FESTIVAL
H. S. conductor, Aspen Music Festival and School (USA)
“The experience has been transformative in many subtle and ineffable ways, though one can point to some of the more overt benefits of attending AMFS for almost nine weeks : a combination of the majestic natural environment perpetually surrounding me, the intimate and protracted interactions with a few hundred of the world’s best classical musicians (many of whom will staff our leading orchestras and ensembles for decades to come), and direct access to many of today’s leading conductors, soloists, and orchestral musicians who served as faculty and visiting artists. …The composition program itself was one of – if not the – best that I’ve participated in.
In short, my experience of AMFS has been deeply satisfying on a professional and personal level. I sincerely thank the Williamson Foundation for Music for helping to make this summer possible for me and highly recommend future support of composers to attend this festival.”
