JAM

JAM – Improvised classical concerts

A specificity of the Academy and musical challenge, which always generates enthusiasm and excitement, the improvised concerts are inspired by the jam sessions of jazz. In this unique and original project the students are invited to prepare lists of « standards », i.e. the most well-known chamber music works for their instrument. The program chosen is announced the morning of the concert and each participant can discover their partners in a public performance without prior preparation or rehearsal – a daunting feat requiring audacity and steady nerves which permits players to validate their mastery of the repertoire and share it with a benevolent but demanding audience.
