Outside of our amazing HRCP instructors, we will also be welcoming three special guest instructors during the spring session.
Since making her debut in 2010 at the Festival van Flandern, Anouchka Hack regularly performs with various orchestras, such as the Dortmunder Philharmoniker, the Sinfonia Rotterdam and the French Chamberphilharmonic. In 2017 her Duo was granted the “Young Artist Award“ at the International Music Festival Buxtehude and the second prize at the Possehl competition, in the 2017/18 season they were presented in the series “Best of NRW“.
Kelly Hall Tompkins
Acclaimed by the New York Times as “the versatile violinist who makes the music come alive” and as a 2017 New York Times “New Yorker of the Year,” for her “tonal mastery” (BBC Music Magazine) and “Groundbreaking” recording projects (STRINGS Magazine), and featured in the Smithsonian Museum of African- American History, violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins is trailblazing an innovative, creative and entrepreneurial career as a soloist and chamber musician.
Hailed by the Strad Magazine for his ‘warm hearted playing and mellow tone’, Philadelphia based violist Andrew Gonzalez lives a fulfilling career as both a soloist and chamber musician, performing in prestigious venues throughout the United States, Asia and Europe. His playing has allowed him to collaborate with respected ensembles such as the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Sejong Soloists, as well as members of the Guarneri, Juilliard, Tokyo, Orion, Borromeo, and Vermeer quartets.
