Vladimir Stoupel með tónleika og masterklassa

Helgina 2. - 3. febrúar næstkomandi mun franski píanóleikarinn Vladimir Stoupel halda tvær vinnusmiðjur (masterklassa) fyrir nemendur Menntaskóla í tónlist og LHÍ. Vinnusmiðjurnar fara fram milli 11 - 15 báða daga,  laugardaginn 2. febrúar í Skipholti 33 og sunnudaginn 3. febrúar í Skipholti 31 (LHÍ).

Two years ago I moved from Norway to Iceland to start my masters studies in composition at the IUA. I am really pleased with my choice. It is so rewarding studying at a university that focuses solely on the arts and you are able to collaborate with students from other departments, which is really inspirational. My teachers are always willing to help and give me feedback and they are with you from the initial idea until the final project. Soon I'll graudate from IUA. Both my art and I have developed and become more mature during these two years at IUA.
