KoSA China 2012
Last month, KoSA founder and artistic director, Aldo Mazza taught and performed in China. Aldo along with KoSA co-founder and life partner Jolán Kovács-Mazza have established an annual KoSA CHINA workshop event, in collaboration with China’s 9 Beats music education, a nation wide structure consisting of 120 schools throughout China.
“This was my fourth tour in mainland China,” states Aldo. “Each time I return to North America fully charged and impressed about different experiences there. I have been asked to annually lead workshops in drums and percussion, as well as perform in Tianjin and Beijing.”
“I had a fantastic experience playing with world class musicians in Beijing and Tianjin,” exclaimed Aldo. “Plans are already in place to return to China next year and continue to develop and expand the KoSA CHINA experience. For me and our entire KoSA Team, it remains fascinating to witness the continued and rapid pace of development being demonstrated by our Chinese friends. Their fervent quest for expanding their pursuit of musical education and their continued excitement around live performance is impressive, and something to consider back in the Americas.
KoSA would like to thank 9 Beats, Evans, Promark, Sabian, and LP for continued presence and support of KoSA CHINA.
