Juilliard Alumnus visiting our school

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting our first visit from a performing artist, John Marcus, here at The British School, Warsaw on Friday 17th February. 

Initially  at Dąbrowskiego between 8:30 and 10:00 and then at Limanowskiego between 1:30 and 3:00 p.m.

All parents are warmly invited to attend. Please join us to witness our students learning in a truly exceptional way.

Through The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme, we aim to inspire and equip students with the skills, curiosity and cultural literacy to engage with the performing arts throughout their lives. We aim to cultivate this kind of appreciation by exposing students to virtuosic performances of master works early, often, and through visits with Juilliard artists to Nord Anglia Schools.

We will be hosting our first visit from a performing artist, John Marcus, here at The British School, Warsaw on Friday 17th February. 

Initially  at Dąbrowskiego between 8:30 and 10:00 where John will be participating in an assembly with the children as well as running a musical workshop that will explore animal sounds using musical instruments.

Then at Limanowskiego between 1:30 and 3:00 p.m. where John  will be conducting a Master Class for our violin students and teachers and we will be inviting all students learning a musical instrument to be part of the audience

John Marcus is a native New Yorker, and a graduate of The Juilliard School, where he received his pre-college division diploma, and his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees. He also holds a postgraduate certificate from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. His teachers include Dorothy DeLay and David Takeno.

As a member of the Grammy-nominated Enso String Quartet, John has performed extensively as a chamber musician throughout the United States, Latin America, and Europe. He gave his first public performance at the age of nine at the Mozarteum in Salzburg; and at fifteen, he performed at Lincoln Center as the winner of the Julliard Violin Competition. For the 1993 gala opening of the Harris Concert Hall in Aspen, Colorado, John appeared as a soloist alongside Pinchas Zukerman and the Aspen Chamber Symphony. For this occasion, the Stradivarius Society of Chicago lent John the 1742 “Burmeister” Guarnerius del Gesu violin.

John has frequently toured Germany as a recitalist, and recently premiered the John Corigliano Sonata for Violin for Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Germany’s leading public radio network. In his hometown of New York City, John has performed for numerous concert series, including LPR, Barbes, BargeMusic and in collaboration with members of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project. John has also performed with the Mark Morris Dance Group, and the New Juilliard Ensemble. As a member of the New York-based chamber music group “The Knights” he has toured throughout the United States and Europe. John has performed at many festivals, including Ravinia, Aspen, Tanglewood, Interlochen, San Miguel de Allende, Campos do Jordao International Winter Festival, Verbier, and Spoletto. Musicians with whom John Marcus has worked include James Dunham, Vera Beths, Ursula Oppens, Sam Rhodes, Peter Oundjian, and Cho-Liang Lin. John loves to cook for his family, and plays on a Joseph Ceruti violin, made in 1816.

The direct engagement between our students and the visiting artist programme is a wonderful opportunity to inspire and enhance our students’ musical journey.
