Vienna I 2 November 2020

The terror attack on 2 November 2020 left us in shock and bewilderment.

At our two institutions, the JAM MUSIC LAB Private University and the International Academy of Music and Performing Arts, we host music students from more than 50 different countries – individuals who entrust their education to us and our city. They come here to enhance their abilities and to broaden their horizons, and we welcome them knowing that they will also broaden our horizon.

Cultural diversity and respect for all humans are core values of JAM MUSIC LAB – our condolences and thoughts are with all those whose lives have been affected by the terrible acts of violence of that evening.
