Lausanne – February 2017

03/02/2017 14:30 - 05/02/2017 13:00
Pôle Sud Lausanne
Avenue Jean-Jaques Mercier 3, Lausanne, Suisse

The first Theremin Academy in 2017 is at the same time the very first independent Theremin Academy in Lausanne/Switzerland. In the past, there were already Theremin events, most times associated to the famous N/O/D/E festival and once in collaboration with the HEMU.

This time, LYDIA KAVINA, CORALIE EHINGER, and THIERRY FRENKEL are proud to present you a new event which will for sure cover everything you expect from a genuine Theremin Academy.

All lessons, workshops, and other events will be held at Pôle Sud if not otherwise indicated.
