Maestro teaches master class

Houston Symphony Conductor Laureate Hans Graf visited Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music April 11 for a master class with students in the Artist Diploma program, an intensive two-year post-master’s degree plan for exceptional young musicians pursuing careers in the highly competitive field of classical music performance.

Graf said working with the Shepherd School’s “great young musicians” was “very nice.” He described the students as “very receptive” to his advice. “I’m very glad to contribute, as all of us are dealing with music practically every day, every hour,” he said.
