The last of this year’s seven Senior Open Concerts that took place in the Music School auditorium recently was played to a full house of listeners.
There were a total of twenty different performances, many of which were of a very high standard.
Most of the performers were using this platform to help them prepare for the Trinity College Music Examinations taking place this week.
Daniel Erasmus playing the 1st movement of the Haydn cello concerto with style and grace; Robyn Hendricks’ very cool Castle Ward by June Armstrong; Music Scholar Asive Ngcebetsha playing the third movement of Seitz’s violin concerto with such aplomb; Jacque Hoefnagels’ charming performance of the cheeky Sour Lemons by Alexander on piano; and the newly-formed Coward Piano Trio performing a piece entitled Swinging Willows by Helyer which was great fun.
The concert ended with Miles Jackson and Sean Howard performing the terminally groovy Smooth by the inimitable Santana.
All the music staff were delighted with the full auditorium and were satisfied that all left well-satisfied at the end of the concert.
Many thanks to those who attended for their support.
