Encouraging Outstanding Young Talent in
The Young Artist Programme was the best transition one could ask for between the end of my student career and the beginning of my professional career.
The whole programme was full of music making in a relaxed-yet-driven environment, and I thank Sarah and Mark for creating such a haven of a platform for young artists.
