Following the success of last year’s BGS Piano Festival – with over thirty of our Senior and Junior pianists performing – we shall be holding our second annual Piano Festival in The Mackay on Thursday 17 May.
This is a fantastic opportunity for our piano players – sometimes a solitary occupation! – to meet like-minds, hear others perform and even to win accolades for their efforts.
All Junior and Senior pianists are welcome to perform and can sign up by following the instructions sent in the Weekly Email on 11 April, or by speaking to their piano teachers. Prizes will be awarded to soloists and duettists in Years 7 and 8, Years 9 and 10, and Years 11 and the Upper Sixth, with winners in each age-category invited back to the evening recital. Parents and students will also have the chance to hear BGS piano teachers Emily Dole and Ana Gomez perform.
Timings for the day will be as follows:
12.00 noon–12.45pm: Junior solos and duets
1.45pm–2.40pm: Senior solos and duets
6.00pm–7.00pm: Evening concert and prize giving ceremony (all students and parents are welcome to attend. Public access is via the side door to The Mackay.)
