Woodend Winter Arts Festival Workshop and Concert

As part of the Woodend Winter Arts Festival, our students were lucky to get a visit from Italian accordion artist Pietro Ruffo. IMG_20160610_141622

Pietro started studying music when he was six-years-old, and he graduated with full marks, honours and honourable mentions at the conservatory “S. Cecilia” in Rome under the direction of the Professor Massimiliano Pitocco. He has won more than fifteen national and international competitions in the modern genre.IMG_20160610_141649

While at Braemar College, Pietro entertained our music students with a concert and workshop.
