There was great enthusiasm for the start of the Concertmaster Artist Program, the Stauffer Academy’s course that offers the unique opportunity to study with the Leader of Europe’s leading orchestras.
The course kicked off with the participation of Lisa Schatzman, Leader of the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra.
Under the guidance of this outstanding professional, the students began their training course aimed at exploring all aspects related to the role of the backing vocalist, starting from repertoire to posture and all fundamental attitudinal aspects.
“During the audition, people do not only have to like your playing. They need to have the confidence that you are the one who is going to lead them.”
Lisa Schatzman and Dora Merelli – Concertmaster alumna- speak about the importance of technical and psychological preparation for the Concertmaster profession.
