AFKA was founded in order to represent the achievements of Kronberg Academy in the USA and to draw the attention of international friends and sponsors to the work of Kronberg Academy.
Since its establishment in 2008 as a non-profit organization the American Friends of Kronberg Academy has become a firm part of social life in southern Florida and is highly regarded for its work to further the education of exceptionally gifted string players.
Mostly through a range of concerts given by students of Kronberg Academy, interested parties are introduced to the remarkable opportunities and possibilities which Kronberg Academy offers to outstanding next-generation musicians. In fact, in recent academic years many of the students were from the USA.
The close relationship between AFKA and Kronberg Academy has become more and more firmly established over the past few years and as a result, an annual lively exchange now takes place and impressive projects can be launched every year.
Further performances and a new format for outreach projects are scheduled for 2017, giving Kronberg’s students an opportunity to work in an unique environment, playing house concerts and working with local, well-established musicians (such as pianists Rachel Naomi Kudo and Tao Lin) while strengthening and enlarging the bonds with local followers and supporters in the USA.
