Tekfen Scholar Cellist Nil Kocamangil attends Gautier Capuçon's Masterclass

One of Turkey's brightest young cellists, Nil Kocamangil has been admitted to world-class cello player Gautier Capuçon's Cello Masterclass. Only six talented cellists are admitted to the class every year, where Nil Kocamangil continues her studies with a Tekfen Foundation scholarship.

Students in Gautier Capuçon's class will attend three classes a month at the Louis Vuitton Foundation during the 2014-2015 school year. Described as a kind of artistic and professional coaching, the Masterclass allows young musicians to deepen their musical knowledge while also teaches them the requisites of being a professional performer.

Nil Kocamangil has been playing with world-famous cellists and orchestras since she went on stage as soloist for the first time at the age of 15.

Nil Kocamangil continues her education in chamber music at the CNSMDP Paris National Conservatory with Quatuor Hades, the string quartet she has co-founded.

Nil, we are proud of you.
