Professional brass musicians visit NAIS Pudong

15 November 2018


At Nord Anglia International School we  pride ourselves on providing opportunities for our students to enrich and extend their engagement with music. This week we were delighted to welcome Mr Ivan Bošnjak and Mr Željko Kertez, professional brass musicians to our school. They worked with our students and provided them with hands on learning experiences.

He appeared as soloist with orchestra and gave master classes for trombone and low brass on several occasions in Japan in 2010, 2012 and 2016 with Tokai Sagami High School Wind Orchestra and Tsuruoka Higashii Wind Band. Željko also holds the position at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb. He is also active as a soloist and he appeared with the Tokai Sagami Wind Orchestra in Yokohama in 2013, where he performed the Artiunian Tuba Concerto with great success. He is engaged as conductor of the Kutina Municipal Brass Orchestra - Kresimir. Željko is an International Artist in Residence with the English Brass Academy founded by the famous trumpet player Paul Archibald, and from 2015 the artistic co-director of the Summer Brass Academy Šibenik, Croatia.

Our students were fortunate to participate in an interactive workshop, where they were able to learn the basics of brass technique. In addition, Ivan and Željko shared their experience of their learning journey to professional musicianship.
