The music teachers at Wycombe Abbey School Changzhou are all dedicated educators and simultaneously excellent performers. The school’s Head of Guitar Nils Klöfver proves the latter by regularly being invited to music festivals and concert series around China and abroad. During the summer vacation he visited the star studded Qinling Festival (Shanxi province)and over the coming Golden Week holiday he will give a solo concert in Jinhua(Zhejiang province).
This concert will feature music ranging from J.S. Bach to the present day and include Nils’ own arrangement of the popular Chinese folk song “Jasmine Flower” for his 11-string alto guitar.
“It’s important for me to keep giving concerts whilst working in education. I think it makes me a better teacher as I’m constantly reminded about what it takes to be in such a special situation. It’s also humbling as I’m aware of the privilege it is to be able to share my music with audiences across the globe.”
