Introduction to the Strings Department with Jo Cole

Welcome to the Academy String Department’s first Virtual Open Day!

The Strings Department Open Day will be hosted by the Academy’s Head of Strings, Jo Cole. Jo says: ‘I’m excited to be hosting our first online open day, and introducing you to the department. If you want to find out about the study of performance in violin, viola, cello or double bass, this is your chance.

‘Please explore the website for guidance about the programmes of study and view the specially created clips for today. During our webinar at 4.30pm on Saturday 20 September, there will be a chance to ask questions – and to meet professors Jack Liebeck and Josephine Knight, and some strings students too.’

Find out more on our main Strings Department webpage and catch up below on our webinar on Sunday, September 20 at 4.30pm, led by Head of Strings Jo Cole.

At 5.30pm on Sunday 20 September, we hosted a livestream performance from the Angela Burgess Recital Hall, also below. Scroll further for a showreel of performances and masterclasses from Academy students.
