Last Saturday saw the first of a series of concerts for this year, showcasing an array of students and teachers.
We were extremely impressed by the high standard of playing made by everyone. Staying cool, calm and collected in front of such a large audience is not an easy task for even the most seasoned musicians, but everyone rose to the occasion.
After the pupil’s concert reached its finale with the concerto in B minor by Oskar Rieding, played excellently by violin students: Nina Zhuo, Shiqin Li and Melody Ni; the audience were given a rare treat listening to the piece ‘Horse Racing’ played by Yao Zhang on a traditional Chinese instrument called the Erhu. The Erhu is a two stringed instrument, bowed from behind the string (opposite to the violin) and played sitting down and balanced on the knee.
We would like to thank everyone who came and supported our performers on Saturday and ask everyone to write the 22nd December down in their diaries, which will be when our Christmas concert will take place at St Ann’s Church.
We hope to see you all there!
