What an honour to have been a part of the Hollywood Music Workshop 2021 in Baden bei Wien! I was very fortunate to have provided assistance during Conrad Pope and Nan Schwarz’s workshops, with live-streaming sessions from Tom Holkenborg (aka JunkieXL) and Thomas Goss. These were unforgettable experiences, as were the rehearsals and the fantastic concert performance. The team I was working with (Dimitrie Leivici, Lilo Bellotto, Michiel de Boer, Rolf Gustavson and Justus Berger) were extremely professional and I’d work with any one of them again in a heartbeat. As a HMW ‘veteran’ (2015, 2016, 2017) I can whole-heartedly recommend participation in HMW, based on the world-class experience you’ll learn from and the valuable networking possibilities you’ll find through fellow students. I hope to see you there next year!
