Students from ICMP’s newest partner school Music Avanguardia were invited to watch ICMP’s Ace’s band Skunk Anansie perform as part of their tour. 

The live performance took place as part of the Turin Flowers Festival in Italy during July. 

Ace, ICMP’s Head of Industry Partnerships and Business Development, and Skunk Anansie guitarist and founding member, arranged free VIP passes and exclusive backstage meet and greet with the band, students, their tutors and parents.

Students had the chance to meet and chat with band members, collect autographs and sip on soft drinks backstage after the show in an incredible listed building behind the giant outdoor festival stage.  

Commenting, Ace said:

It was so refreshing and uplifting to meet such an enthusiastic and promising group of young musicians. They were a joy and inspiration for the whole band to meet and hear their stories of practice on their instruments and goals in the business!"
