There have been a number of international visits made by Trinity Laban staff over the past month, reflecting Trinity Laban’s status as the first choice place of study for an ever-increasing number of talented students from across the globe.
Starting in Hong Kong, Trinity Laban Principal Professor Anthony Bowne hosted an alumni and special guests evening at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club. The evening celebrated the launch of Trinity Laban auditions in Hong Kong for the first time.
Professor Bowne hosted another alumni evening in Taiwan, as well as visiting Chinese Culture University, University of Taipei, National Taiwan University of Arts and Taipei National University of the Arts. He also took a tour of the new home of Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan with alumnus Ching Chun Lee, who is Associate Artistic Director of the company.
At the same time, Assistant Director of Music Havilland Willshire visited China, giving piano masterclasses at South West Jiaotong University and Xihua University in Chengdu. He hosted a Q&A about studying music in the UK, and observed classes and performances across a number of schools and institutions.
In South Korea, Trinity Laban Head of Piano and Keyboard Instruments, Peter Tuite, visited prestigious institutions such as Seoul National University and also the Korean National University of the Arts (another Trinity Laban partner institution), where he gave a masterclass.
Moving on to Japan, Tuite held an alumni evening and also met with staff at the National Piano Teachers’ Association.
We will continue to expand our range of overseas audition locations in 2017. For more information, please contact [email protected]
