Students and partners from Northern Ireland, Poland, Ireland, and The Netherlands gathered together for a week of music, collaboration, and cultural exchange. Preparation for this event had been taking place over the past few months, and the experience was beyond our expectations. The musical gifts and skills shared among the participants were truly mind-blowing, and it was a privilege to witness their creativity and dedication.
