Since 2007, as the consequence of the close relationship between the Paloheimo family and the composer Jean Sibelius, superb musicians from the Sibelius Academy in Finland have conducted master-classes called Creative Dialogue at Acequia Madre House™. Their students are accomplished international musicians from Juilliard, Yale, Eastman and other distinguished conservatories nominated by their respective deans.
Each Creative Dialogue session concludes with a free concert at St. Francis Auditorium. Many of the students describe the experience as transformative. From the inception, these master classes have had a strong female presence both among the master musicians and pupils.
