Friday was a big day in the history of EF Education First, the for-profit education company.

The Swedish firm, which started with just three workers and now employs more than 37,000 people in dozens of countries, celebrated its 50th anniversary with a series of events in Boston that included speeches at the Hynes Convention Center by former President Bill Clinton, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and governors past and present Deval Patrick and Charlie Baker. Entertainment came from the Pointer Sisters and British electric violinists FUSE (Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee).




EF Education First CEO Edward Hult, was in attendance, and some 2,500 employees, students, and the Hult International Business School. Other speakers included Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, Indian actress-singer Priyanka Chopra, former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, and, via video, former Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev.

The celebration continued with a party Friday night at the Delta hangar at Logan Airport. In the space an area made to look like Brighton, England, the destination of the first EF tour group of Swedish students.

Proud to perform along side the Pointer Sisters the FUSE electric violinist are for hire at prestigious global events, high end product launches and of course VIP private events.




The live show is an experience that makes the occasion feel all the more spectacular. Acclaimed as one of the most in demand string acts in the world, the signature sound and style of Linzi Stoppard

and Ben Lee is a stunning brand of entertainment unrivalled in the electric violin world.

At this memorable celebration there was a real connection between the violin duo and the audience – having a world class act demonstrate their coveted art-form, not to mention 5-times world’s record breaking Fastest Violinist In The World was a truly inspiration addition to the event.
