A-level Musicians perform at Southampton Art Gallery Jan 2015

 Jan 2015On January 28th, the KES AS- and A-Level Music students performed a lunchtime concert in the Southampton Art Gallery to rapturous applause. Their programme showcased an impressively broad spread of styles and techniques. The works on offer ranged from piano solos by Liszt and Debussy; to songs by Michael Head, Mozart, Rogers and Hammerstein, and Vaughan-Williams; as well as pieces for cello, clarinet, and viola. Seating space was limited, but members of the public were more than willing to stand as the recital unfolded. By the final number our ensemble had captured the attention of a large audience. It was a beautiful space with a vintage Steinway grand piano and remarkable acoustics. The event was very well received by all who attended, and the Museum’s staff expressed a hope that we would return in the near future.
