Well established Swedish Folk High School Lunnevad has invited clarinetist Emil Jonason to be their Artist in Residence in 2016-2017. Emil will give master classes and concerts during the year, in collaboration with the students and Linköping Kammarmusikförening.
The first two masterclasses and concerts will be given on October 21-22 at Lunnevad.
Being Artist in Residence means that the artist has the opportunity to create / build something during a longer period of time ; at an institution, a concert hall or with a permanent ensemble / orchestra. At the Lunnevad Music Program, we have for each academic year a number of guest lecturers who usually come and meet our students in one day. With our new thought, the artist will visit us not just once but several times over a period of three semesters and thus have the opportunity to meet students on several occasions. This way, our students can penetrate deeper into the guest teacher’s materials and ways of thinking, and benefit from his / her experience and knowledge.
We are very much looking forward to the collaboration!
