Student singing whilst playing the piano

Last week we attended a fabulous ‘Music at Lunchtime’ recital. From Chopin to Rihanna, there was something for everyone. Leahnora T.L. kicked off the show with her gorgeous performance of ‘America’ from West Side Story. She really captured the jazzy style of the piece and did the famous song justice. Continuing with the cinematic theme, next was Lucy J, who accompanied herself, playing ‘Skyfall’ by Adele. Her beautiful voice perfectly matched her piano playing, and she had a large group of supporters cheering her on. Nextwas our second saxophonist of the show, Cristina C. Cristina, who was 10% braver as she performed her tremendous piece with style and ease twice after a slight accompaniment mishap the first time round. Following this was Katherine S, who played a mesmerising Prelude by Chopin on the piano, completely enchanting the audience with her expert playing.This was followed by an astounding rendition of ‘Stay’ by Rihanna, which was sung (and accompanied) by Mei-Xing. The audience was absolutely captivated by her incredible voice. The recital was closed by Erica M and she played ‘Nightfall Panteleimon’, by Michaeloudis, and captured the dramatic Spanish essence of the piece perfectly. This week’s recital was absolutely fantastic and you can listen to all the performances here:
