IE community attended a concert by the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía in the National Auditorium

Yesterday, the IE community enjoyed a wonderful concert by the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía in the National Auditorium in Madrid.

The Reina Sofía School of Music was founded by Paloma O’Shea with the aim of establishing in Spain a centre of high professional specialisation which the most talented young musicians from all over the world could attend, in order to study with renowned international professors and bring music closer to society.

The Reina Sofía School of Music soon achieved international renown – British magazine The Strad (July 2001) described it as “one of the best schools in Europe, if not the world” – as a result of the pedagogical principles it has applied since its foundation: admission of students and professors solely on merit, an ambitious scholarship programme that leaves no one out of the School for financial circumstances, freedom of teaching, individualized study plan and a large number of concerts considered to be an extension of the academic activity.
