Music Competition 2019

The KES Music Competition 2019, adjudicated by Dr Samantha Carrasco, presented the finest talents in solo performance. Pupils selected works ranging from Beethoven and Mozart to Kovács and Schönberg to the delight of the audience. The runner up and winner of the Grade V – VII category, Lucy and Barnaby both displayed sparkling rhythmic energy and confidence on the stage. The Senior category Grade VIII + runner up Edward gave us great variety in his interpretation of Beethoven’s Rondo from Sonata no. 9 and Senior category winner Aelfred was mesmerizing. His performance of Shalom Aleichem, Rov Feidman, rich with characterisation and exemplary technical prowess was a worthy winner. The commitment of every performer and the musicality on show was a treat for us all. The occasion was a delight for friends and family and congratulations must go to all participants for giving us such a memorable evening.
