A totally amazing experience to be there in Limeira, Brazil for the festival. The students and master musicians were wonderfully passionate about music and interested in contemporary composers. All the people were genuinely welcoming, open-hearted and appreciative. Truly a soul-nourishing, musically revitalizing and treasured experience. The South American premiere of In Passages was performed brilliantly by Sylvia Ahramjian, as soloist and conducted by Paula Sant’ana.
