Kapiti Student Musicians
Saturday 27 May 2019 – Sunday 10 November 2018
These concerts are designed to provide local music students with stage experience, including learning how to acknowledge applause.
May 2019: The first concert at 1.30pm introduces junior students and at 4.30pm more advanced students perform.
Nov 2019 3:30pm: with students’ schedules packed out with exams, a smaller combined concert.
Entry is by donation. There is no set charge.
The standard of performance is improving year by year and these young people are among the best at their level.
We cannot know in advance just what each programme will contain, but there are always some very good pianists
and we also expect other instrumentalists or singers and some talented groups.
Some of our former student musicians have gone on to greater things.
Baritone Kieran Rayner has graduated from London’s Royal College
of Music International Opera School where he had generous support
from the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation.
Blythe Press (violin) is a member of the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra in Norway.
From 2017 – Robin Shen and Joni Tran – the tallest and the smallest of our current
batch of talented students pose for a photo after concert 11 Nov 2017.
