Young mu­si­cians play fi­nale in Stein­way series

Wangaratta Chronicle - - What's On -

Young artists will take to the stage at the Wan­garatta Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 4 for the fi­nal con­cert in this year’s series of the pop­u­lar Stein­way on Stage twi­light pro­gram.

The event is an op­por­tu­nity for tal­ented lo­cal mu­si­cians to play the Stein­way grand piano as part of an in­ti­mate show, where the au­di­ence is seated around the fine in­stru­ment so they can hear its ex­tra­or­di­nary sound.

The fi­nal con­cert will fea­ture per­for­mances by Wan­garatta High School stu­dent Rose-Lynne Wa­ters and by former Galen Catholic Col­lege stu­dents, Chloe Han­cock and Isaac Waite.

Rose-Lynne Wa­ters has been play­ing piano for as long as she can re­mem­ber and with cur­rent teacher Mar­garet Warner, com­pleted grade seven with first class hon­ours in 2016.

She is cur­rently un­der­tak­ing VCE Mu­sic per­for­mance solo stud­ies and will present her prac­ti­cal as­sess­ment pro­gram of works by De­bussy, Beethoven, Schu­mann, Gersh­win and Nor­ton.

Rose-Lynne has also played the flute for seven years, per­form­ing with the Wan­garatta High School Sym­phonic Band, the Se­nior Flute En­sem­ble and the Stage Band on both piano and flute, while also play­ing reg­u­larly at church.

Chloe Han­cock and Isaac Waite are cur­rently un­der­tak­ing a gap year af­ter com­plet­ing VCE at Galen Catholic Col­lege and both plan to con­tinue their stud­ies at univer­sity in 2018.

In 2016 they were the joint re­cip­i­ents of the Di­rec­tor’s Award and both dux of mu­sic.

They have been mem­bers of Galen’s con­cert band and have par­tic­i­pated in school pro­duc­tions and tal­ent quests, with Chloe the over­all win­ner of the 2016 Galen tal­ent quest.

Chloe and Isaac’s recital will in­clude a va­ri­ety of in­stru­ments in­clud­ing piano, voice, gui­tar and per­cus­sion as they play pieces from the wide reper­toire they have de­vel­oped since play­ing to­gether in re­cent years.

This Stein­way on Stage series has been a part­ner­ship be­tween Wan­garatta Arts Coun­cil and the Wan­garatta Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre since 2010.

The fi­nal con­cert will be­gin at 6pm and tick­ets are avail­able at www.wan­garat­ta­ or by call­ing 5722 8105.
