“The COE Academy has given me the wonderful opportunity to observe and experience the work of this exceptional orchestra. I felt that the spirit of chamber music plays an important role in the orchestra’s attitude and gives the COE its unique warm and beautiful sound quality. I am very thankful that the COE shares its inspirational music-making with emerging professional musicians through its Academy scheme.”
