The Academy is running on its full steam! More people are arriving – trainers from Tashkent, Bishkek, New York, Hartford and Delhi join the process bringing new ideas, new impressions and sharing precious knowledge and skills with young musicians! Even if our Program Manager, Maxim, has left Bishkek today, we still continue to follow the Academy.
But before we’ll jump into the next exciting week with Jeremy Thal and Robert Black from the US and later Dhruba Ghosh from India there are lots of fun to share form the last week.
The series of our Saturday jam sessions continue to gather more and more lucky Bishkenkians. Last Saturday’s event at Studio 247 was the celebration of music and cinematography. Academy’s participants together with the trainers entwined their music into the original soundtrack of “Colour of Pomegranate”, a film by Paradjanov, creating an absolutely breathtaking atmosphere of genuinely creative process.
Here are the images of the working moments at the rehearsals and the event itself.
Right after an exciting trip to lake Issyk Kul last Sunday the participants returned to Bishkek like freshly baked buns! Sun tanned and recharged, we all jumped into the second half of the trainings – workshop-lectures with invited trainers.
Leading musicians of Central Asia, Artyom Kim (Uzbekistan) and Nurlanbek Nyshanov (Kyrgyzstan) opened the series of master-classes with guest trainers.
As usual here is our photo-reportage:
The Academy has got a productive tendency to discover more and more talents. The concert on July 27 was another truly unique experience. The guest musicians from the Omnibus Ensemble (Uzbekistan) joined the participants in the concert, playing music of contemporary composers of Central Asia and Iran. Needless to say anything… We hope to have sound fragments available soon, but for now, the images below will demonstrate the depth of emotions, high level of concentration and incredible professionalism.
We play together and we spend great time together.
The Academy is still on and more interesting news to come.
