The Haute école de musique Vaud Valais Friborg (HEMU) has announced that Janine Jansen will have a class at its Sion campus from September 2019. Jansen is taking over the class from Ukrainian violinist Pavel Vernikov.

‘Her extensive experience on the international scene will be a major asset for students,’ said a statement from the college.

HEMU is the product of the 2008 integration of the Haute école de musique of Lausanne with the music schools of Sion and Fribourg.

‘I am very excited about starting a small class at the HEMU Sion,’ Jansen said.

‘Inspired by the legacy of legendary violinist Tibor Varga, the school is set in one of the most inspiring parts of the world! I am very much looking forward to it.’
