Giuilio Quirici, Theorbe

Aleid van Beuningen and SEM don’t simply provide outstanding financial support: they also understand the needs of the upcoming generation of young musicians on a broader point of view. SEM offered me indispensable help for the purchase of my instrument, but also offered practical counselling, networking, and most importantly of all showed a genuine interest in my work, all in the spirit of an actual artistic collaboration. It’s not surprising that the work of SEM has proven so successful and long-lasting: on the special occasion of their 15th year of activity, I am very glad to be a SEM artist!
