Commenting on the conference Andrew said “Now is a more important time than ever before to share across borders how we can use the unique and universal powers of chamber music across education. Not just as an instrumental and highly refined musical training, but for the wider benefit of those who can benefit the most from chamber music’s therapeutic qualities of communication, leadership and empathy. As CEO I am absolutely thrilled that our European friends and colleagues will be joining us once again at our beautiful home – the only full time site in Europe dedicated year round to chamber music education.”
