“In my life, there have often been situations in which others have helped me. I am now passing this help on to others. This closes a universal circle.”
In June 2017, Manuel Druminski visited the Music School of Nigeria (MUSON) in Lagos for the first time. His experiences there, along with those he had already made in Chile and Colombia in 2016, have left their mark on him.
Manuel Druminski sees himself as a musician who was given the opportunity to undergo a unique musical education. That is why it is now particularly important for him to stand by those students who can only develop their talent under challenging conditions.
The respect for these achievements and the incredible motivation with which the students in Chile, Colombia and Nigeria evidently devote themselves to their studies are confirming his commitment.
Manuel Druminski received professorships in Colombia, Nigeria and Kuwait. He also regularly holds chamber music and master classes at various institutions in Chile.
