The students of the CMUS Professional Vigo are very satisfied after the piano and chamber music masterclasses given by the Erasmus+ Guest Expert, giving a rating in the satisfaction surveys of 5 out of 5.

Between Tuesday and Thursday of this week took place the masterclasses of the Portuguese pianist João Pontes Araújo, invited through the Erasmus+ Project of our conservatory. Masterclasses were held on piano, instrumental chamber music and piano and voice, the three main specialities of this Portuguese pianist. A total of 16 students of Professional Grade attended these masterclasses.

In addition to these masterclasses, which took place in the morning and afternoon in the David Russell Auditorium, the closing ceremony and presentation of diplomas included a recital by the guest expert together with a small representation of our teaching staff. The recital featured a repertoire chosen by the guest expert himself, based on the instrumental specialities (piano, corda, clarinet and voice) that he usually accompanies at the “Universidade de Aveiro”, where he has been teaching since 2016.

On the other hand, we would like to thank the Erasmus+ Team for the participation of the teaching staff, especially the piano teacher, for accompanying the students during these three days of activity in the David Russell Auditorium.

See you next year with the Erasmus+ 2024 Guest Expert activities!
