In this year’s Piano & Guitar Evening, students from all year groups treated the audience to a great display of musical skill, musicianship and, of course, wonderful music.
For some of our performers, this was their first concert in Coloma – Alannah Keane, Year 7, is a notable example, playing Chopin’s Prelude in B Minor with incredible skill.
Towards the end of the concert, two of our more experienced pianists showed the audience the results of their years of hard work, namely Katie Makulska (Year 12) who played Intermezzo in A Minor by Brahms, and Jasmin Bennett (Year 13) who played Sonrisa by Herbie Hancock.
In terms of guitar performances, there were many different styles of pieces, from Holst’s In The Bleak Midwinter, played by a small ensemble, to Farrauto’s Morenita do Brazil played by Pearl Young (Year 12).
Playing in front of an audience can be nerve-wracking, but everyone who took part, whether they felt nervous or not, looked confident, played really well, and enjoyed the evening – as did the audience!
