In the ever-evolving world of music, it’s heartwarming and inspiring to see our alumni reach new heights and create beautiful harmonies in different corners of the globe. Today, we are thrilled to introduce you to Michael Husu, one of our esteemed alumni, who is currently making waves in the enchanting city of Lucerne, Switzerland.

Michael Husu, who once walked our halls as a promising young musician, is now in his second year at the preeminent Hochschule Luzern – Musik, specializing in Piano Performance. It’s incredible to witness the journey of a budding talent as they spread their wings and take their passion to international stages.

Last June, Michael embarked on a musical odyssey that resulted in an ambitious project that was nothing short of breathtaking: assembling an orchestra, meticulously rehearsing, and then delivering awe-inspiring performances of three major symphonic works. The pieces chosen for this monumental endeavor were no ordinary compositions – they were handpicked gems from the classical repertoire, showcasing Michael’s commitment to pushing boundaries and exploring the depths of his craft.

The program featured Mozart’s iconic “Magic Flute Overture,” a piece known for its playful melodies and enchanting themes. Michael’s interpretation breathed new life into this timeless classic, capturing the hearts of the audience and transporting them to the magical world of Mozart.

Albeniz’s “Sevilla” followed suit, a fiery and passionate composition that demands precision and emotional depth. Michael, with his innate musicality and technical prowess, navigated the intricate passages of this Spanish masterpiece with finesse, leaving a lasting impression on all who had the privilege to listen.

But the crowning jewel of Michael’s musical expedition was Sibelius’ “Valse Triste.” This hauntingly beautiful waltz, known for its melancholic undertones, was brought to life by Michael and his orchestra in a performance that tugged at the heartstrings of every listener. It was a testament to Michael’s ability to evoke deep emotions through his music, a true maestro at work.

The results of Michael’s labor were nothing short of stunning. His dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment to the art of music shone brightly on the stage of the Hochschule Luzern – Musik. The audience was treated to an unforgettable evening of music that transcended boundaries and left a lasting impact on all those who were fortunate enough to be in attendance.

As Michael continues to pursue his passion for music in Lucerne, Switzerland, we can’t help but feel immense pride in his achievements. He is a shining example of what can be accomplished with talent, hard work, and a deep love for the arts. Michael Husu, our talented alumnus, has indeed made us proud, and we can’t wait to see where his musical journey takes him next.
