Monday 14 October witnessed another hotly contested Concerto Competition in front of a packed audience, featuring nine pupils performing one movement each from a major concerto, accompanied by a professional orchestra.
An eclectic mix of repertoire was performed, and the standard of musicianship and technical skill on display was outstanding. A phenomenally accomplished rendition of the third movement from Strauss's First Horn Concerto saw Cameron clinch the victory, with Alasdair in runner up, with a warm and vibrant first movement from Beethoven's First Piano Concerto.
Director of Performing Arts, Oliver White, said ‘It is a credit to the pupils and their teachers that we can put on an evening of music-making to such an amazing level, with so little separating all the competitors. Virtuosity and musicality were all in abundance and I was hugely impressed with the commitment and passionate performances throughout the evening.’
