This summer we are able to give more students a once-in-a-lifetime summer experience. Building on the strengths of the Summer Performing Arts programme in Geneva, we are excited to expand the programme, adding two unique courses focused on voice and strings taught by Juilliard artist faculty. The purpose is to provide programmes that focus on a single performing arts subject, says Seth Baer, The Juilliard School’s director for Summer Performing Arts.
“We are immensely proud of how our program in Geneva has grown in stature and reputation in the past two summers. This year, we have chosen to expand our offerings to include discipline-specific programmes in Voice and Strings. Our hope with these programmes is to offer more targeted kinds of experiences to students in search of just that – intensive experiences that focuses deeply into one of the performing arts.”
The decision to expand summer performing arts also reflect the high standards and goals Nord Anglia Education has for its students.
“As Director of Curriculum for Nord Anglia, I am delighted to see the growth of our unique summer arts programmes with Juilliard this year. Our philosophy is to be ambitious, and extend and enhance the learning for all the students we come in to contact with. The expansion of this highly successful programme to two new countries shows that we are dedicated to that vision for as many students as possible,” said Mark Orrow-Whiting.
