"Crescendo Summer Institute" 2018
The "15th Crescendo Summer Institute" with 300 participants from 33 countries (amongst them 250 students, teachers and participants of the youth program) took place in Tokaj, Hungary.
It was a wonderful and a "life changing" experience as some participants said.
Here some feedbacks:
"I have grown as a musician and enjoyed working with the amazing faculty. The environment is so warm and welcoming, I feel at home with the students and teachers here, there are no strangers." (Madison Babovec, French horn, USA)
"The Crescendo Summer Institute is not only a place for gaining knowledge every day. It is also a place for community. As a bass player I have a chance to experience professionalism and being competent in multiple styles. Playing either Jazz or Beethoven it is my ongoing experience how colorful this program is. I warmly recommend it to everyone!" (Simon János Tóth, double bass, HUNGARY)
"For me Crescendo began to be a summer tradition that I’m waiting the whole year for. It’s my 4th time. I was so excited to be back this year and see all of my friends, play in the symphony orchestra and have fantastic lessons.
I love Crescendo because besides music I can focus on really important things in life and I always have someone to talk about it. At Crescendo, I can continue learning how to combine being a musician and growing in faith." (Dorota Kolinek, viola/ Warsaw)
