Congratulations to all of the students who performed in last week’s Twilight Concert. We had a variety of instruments and pieces played throughout the evening.
This Twilight Concert was slightly different to most as it was the responsibility of the performer to:
- Introduce themselves,
- introduce the title of the piece and composer
- acknowledge and thank their teacher
- and if required, introduce their accompanist.
To remind the students what to say, we had cheat sheets on the floor at the front of the stage. One problem with this was the students had a tendency to speak to the floor, instead of to their audience. Stage craft skills take a while to master so the more the students practice in the Twilight Concerts, the confident they will be to speak in front of an audience.
Here are some of the performers in action:
