Open Musicians’ Platform

Last week we held another Open Musicians’ Platform. These concerts are for musicians from across the entire school, and present a perfect opportunity to try out pieces in an informal setting.
Our Steinway took a starring role in this programme with eight solo pieces ranging from Mozart to Scriabin. The concert closed with two pieces of Chopin performed with great sensitivity and virtuosity by members of the Upper Sixth.
Elsewhere we had two assured oboe solos, an impressively mature violin performance, and a memorable rendition of ‘Daddy’s Son’ from the musical, Ragtime.
Of course we are unable to host a live audience at present, but our MultiCam system is able to capture the performances very effectively, and the video is now available to view on the music department’s Vimeo page. Click here to watch Photos
