SJR was represented by three different students from three “generations” of the SJR Music Department. Justin Turnbull (former student of SJR now reading music at the University of Bristol), Thomas Bennett (current A2 Music student) and Hannah Spencer (pupil of Up Holland High School who will be joining the SJR Music Department in Sept 2015) all performed on the Steinway grand piano at Parbold Village Hall as part of the Douglas Music Society Festival.
The students played a variety of pieces from a wide range of styles. Justin treated us to a performance of Messiaen Birdsong and Thomas played a beautiful rendition of Debussy’s ‘Sunken Cathedral’.
A wonderful night was had by all as our students past, present and future performed alongside other very talented musicians from a variety of backgrounds.
