The fourth in RGS’s series of Senior Piano Concerts was held in Perrins Hall on Thursday 8 February.
A recital platform was provided for some of the talented pianists at the School. This year we were delighted to welcome the young Bulgarian Pianist, Marina Staneva as our guest soloist. Our young pianists had lunch with Miss Staneva before going over to Perrins Hall to watch Liam Leonard and Megan Wang playing in a Masterclass with her.
The first half of the concert featured our Senior Pianists. All players have achieved at least Grade 6 standard and above. They all performed Senior Repertoire including works by Rachmaninov, Chopin Debussy and Brahms.
The second half of the concert featured a beautiful programme from Miss Staneva; ranging from some lovely, lyrical Debussy to some fiery Rachmaninov and excerpts from Prokofiev’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ suite, including the famous ‘Dance of the Knights’ theme.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Worcester kindly attended the concert together with Governors, alumni, parents, grandparents, friends and pupils. It was a wonderful evening and a chance to put our leading pianists centre stage.
