This month’s Instrumental Evenings have been presented by Woodwind, Brass and String players from both schools. For some musicians, this is the first time they have performed publically at KEHS, and they did so with confidence and musicality. Thank you and congratulations to Jovie, Melissa, Elizabeth and Olivia for their solo contributions to the Woodwind and Brass Evening, and to Saran, Amelie, Victoria, Lucy for their performances in ensembles; and to Anya, Madeline, Salihah, Sharon, Jovie, Indira, Derwent, Alicia, Ritisha and Alisha for their solo contributions to the String Evening, and Emily, Jessie and Charlotte for performing as part of a String Quartet.
Last week’s Lunchtime Recital in the Ruddock Hall was a showcase of String talent in the KEHS Chamber Orchestra, led by Charlotte. They performed a very moving rendition of the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s beautiful Serenade for Strings, followed by an exciting and vibrant performance of Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances. Congratulations to all.
