Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A suc­cess­ful demon­stra­tion con­cert was held by school- aged stu­dents in the Per­form­ing Arts Stu­dio at Pataka on May 28.

For sev­eral years, Kapi-Mana Mu­sic Teach­ers have run com­pe­ti­tions for their school- aged stu­dents to give them the ex­pe­ri­ence of per­form­ing in public and to be ad­ju­di­cated by mu­si­cians other than their teach­ers.

With the estab­lish­ment of Vir­tu­oso Strings Char­i­ta­ble Trust, a free string pro­gramme for stu­dents in the Can­nons Creek schools, it was time to also en­cour­age th­ese stu­dents to per­form in public. So this year Kapi-Mana Mu­sic Teach­ers and Vir­tu­oso Strings com­bined to pro­mote the Kapi-Mana Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Vir­tu­oso Strings ran the bowed strings com­pe­ti­tions on May 16, and on May 17 and 24 Kapi-Mana Mu­sic Teach­ers ran events.

A demon­stra­tion con­cert was held on May 28. Award win­ners were: Erana Ta­maiva, Jef­frey Passi, Jes­sica Jenk­ins, An­drew Cheng, Daniel Sneyd- Ut­ting, Nathan Luapo and Christine Muli­talo.
