The Yehudi Menuhin School announced today that it will set up international music school in Qingdao, China, equidistant between Shanghai and Beijing. The campus is scheduled to open in 2022-23.

YMS will appoint the Head, Director of Music and Bursar and will share the Yehudi Menuhin School name and expertise in running the place. There will also be teacher and pupil exchanges between the two campuses in China and the UK.

Star Menuhin graduates include Nigel Kennedy, Nicola Benedetti, Tasmin Little and Kathryn Stott.
