Brooklyn Music School (Brooklyn, NY) is sending 20 students to Paris for a series of concerts in April. The students will be performing two concerts in Paris, following a successful concert with students from the Ecole d'Art Musical - a Suzuki Strings School in Paris, France, in April 2018. They held a fundraiser concert in April to raise the money for the trip.
"BMS has had a tradition of presenting students abroad during the 1950s and 1960s,” says Piruz Partow, BMS Executive Director, “and our trip to Belgium in 2015 really ignited our school and community. Our string program is the strongest that it's ever been thanks to Michael Vannoni and I am proud that he and his students will represent the school, the borough, the city, state, and our country."
BMS students and students from Ecole d'Art Musical will be performing in two exceptional venues in Paris including, the Parish of La Madeleine, whose history dates back to the 13th century, and the Town Hall of the 5th Arrondissment, also known as Panthéon.
Michael Vannoni, Strings Department Chair, said, “The students are working very hard to prepare and you can tangibly feel the excitement growing as the date of the trip gets closer. We had a very successful exchange concert with the Ecole d’Art Musical last year, and we are delighted to have the chance to visit them in their hometown and perform together again in Paris.”
