Project Masterclass in Promenois Summer 2015
In August 2015 twenty young musicians from Kosovo will be invited to attend a ten days master class for orchestra and chamber music at castle Promenois in Burgundy, France (see separate fact sheet with budget). The success and good experience with the first Masterclass with 16 young musicians from Kosovo in 2014 motivated us to plan for this second edition in 2015.
Ola Sentecki (violin), Oliwia Graboswska (piano), Lukas Raaflaub (cello), together with Pëllumb Vula (clarinet and conducting) will give individual master classes and lead the music workshops for ensembles and the orchestra. The project is organized and sponsored by Dorothea & Georg Fankhauser (up to € 10’000.- privately and through related swiss foundation Pirolo). Support from private and institutional sponsors is searched for during the second quarter 2015.
Emphasis will be on violin, piano and cello as solo instruments and the work in the orchestra and ensembles on a mixed program with pieces from various composers of different origins and periods. The result of this work will be presented in two public concerts in the city hall of Arnay-le-Duc, the nearby town in Burgundy and in Promenois castle. The same concert program will later be presented in Kosovo, for sure Gjakova and other places to be defined.

Everybody is looking forward to be part of and realise this project.
Based on our manifold positive experience with the young musicians involved in the context of our continuous support of music projects and institutions in Kosovo, we can stand for good implementation of this project, transparent financing and efficient use of all means including a good deal of goodwill and benevolent work of our friends and partners in Switzerland, Kosovo and France (see separate fact sheet with budget).
We hope we have attracted your attention and goodwill and would be very thankful for your financial support of this project according to your possibilities.
