On Thursday, 18 July 2019, the Music Department presented the first of three Studio Concerts. These concerts are an opportunity for every music student to perform as a soloist for family and friends in an informal setting. This concert, Studio Concert: Adagio, featured our newest members of the music department, namely those who have been playing an instrument for less than a year.
Thirty one children performed on a variety of instruments from the piano, brass, percussion and woodwind sections. Although nerves affected some of our young musicians, there were some outstanding performances. It is not easy to stand in front of so many people and play an instrument on which they are not yet completely comfortable. We are very proud of the progress made by each one of these children and look forward to watching them experience the magic that is music.
Our next concert, Studio Concert: Allegro, will take place on 5 September 2019, and will feature all our Royal School of Music candidates who will be playing their Royal School of Music examination on 10 September 2019. They will perform two of the three pieces that they have prepared for their examination. All are welcome to attend!
