Ingenium 2016: Where our students from?
18th May 2016
With Ingenium 2016 less than 10 weeks away, we're really excited by how many countries are already represented among our students this summer. Could yours be next on the map?
Last year we welcomed over 120 students from 37 different countries, and this year we are already even more international with 40 countries represented, and new ones every day.
This summer we are really excited that we will be joined by young musicians from countries as diverse as Tanzania, Jamaica, Russia, New Zealand and the Philippines, as well as students from all across Europe, the USA and South America.
The Ingenium Academy is open to everyone from all over the world, meaning that our students spend three weeks immersed not simply in music making but also in a truly diverse cultural environment.

"I am glad that Eva roomed with international students her age - knowing other cultures and making friends is very important. She felt it safe, organized, structured, positive, inclusive and diverse"
