‘Russia is a wonderful land that her long-standing music cultures have become an essential part of every one’s life. Among all kinds of music, string has always been one of the best to people, be they the royalty or the civilians. For all these years, Russia has been nurturing the greatest number of outstanding musicians around the world. This time, we are more than honored to be inviting renowned conductors and professors in St. Petersburg to take part in our training, which is also a great honor to students participating in the music tour. We have a firm belief that, after receiving the rigorous training provided by such a group of music masters in a campsite surrounded by natural scenery, students will not only have their instrumental skills improved, but have their understanding about musical-performance renewed as well.’
