I had the honor of attending the Valencia International Performance Academy (VIPA) and Festival in July. It was a 10-day festival where we attended lessons, master classes, and concerts with amazing composers. The composition faculty for the 2015 session included Jorge Villavicencio Grossmann, Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon, with guest composers Stefano Gervasoni and Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez. I also had the honor of having my composition “Chiyogami Suite” performed there by the amazing pianist Jenny Lin.
