Afghanistan National Institute of Music

The Patterson/Sutton Duo was thrilled to be invited for a residency at the 4th Annual Winter Music Academy of the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM) in January of 2014. We were honored to be there and it was a supremely inspiring experience. We spent our days giving private lessons, coaching ensembles, running orchestra sectionals and leading workshops. We also performed in guest artist concerts at ANIM and at the Canadian Embassy of Afghanistan. The students and faculty of ANIM, as well as the city of Kabul, left a lasting impression on us.
