On Sunday 6 October the Old Mission Church in Long Street will play host to four very talented young local pianists.
Lehandré Wolmarans is a Grade 12 learner at Robertson High School, and Enrike Groenwald and Henry Viljoen are in Grade 11 and Grade 12 at Montagu High School respectively. All three of them have passed the Unisa Grade 7 examinations with distinction, and between them they have won a host of certificates and medals at eisteddfods and music festivals.
They will be joined by Stephen Arendse, piano lecturer and choir director at the Ad Libitum Academy of Music in Robertson, who helped put together the program, which includes music by Scarlatti, Mozart, Debussy, Kuhlau, Queen, and even an own composition by Henry himself.
Lehandré is a pupil of Marvin Booysen, the principal of Ad Libitum, and Henry was instructed by Jaco Beeslaar; while Enrike was a pupil of Aletta de Winter and Liesa Nieuwenhuis.
Lehandré intends to further her music studies next year, and Henry will study for a BSc degree abroad. This is probably the last opportunity that Montagu audiences will have to hear these two play, since the Matric final exam is looming.
Date: Sunday 6 October
Venue: Old Mission Church in Long Street, Montagu
Tickets: R40 per person at the venue door
