“It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Malta Classical Music Academy, the EUFSC’s flagship educational project and a truly unique experience in the world of classical music tuition. Throughout three weeks of intensive masterclasses, lectures and performances, participants will push their technical and musical skills to the limit as they study with some of the biggest names in classical music from around the world. On behalf of myself and everyone at the EUFSC I look forward to welcoming our esteemed colleagues and valued audiences to Malta as we embark on a voyage of discovery and artistic evolution.” — Konstantin Ishkhanov, President of the EUFSC.
