The Montagu Music Society is back after a short winter break, and ready to bring good music to Montagu and our neighbouring towns.
To stave off the winter chills, our next concert will feature music for the heart and soul. Ying-Shan Tseng, who was born blind and started piano lessons at the age of four, is now a Grade 11 student at Worcester Gymnasium. She will play piano music by Bach and Schumann, and sing a selection of arias, lieder and songs. A special highlight will be a performance of the 1st movement (Vivace) of Haydn's Piano Concerto no. 11 in D major, HOB. XVII: 11. While Ying-Shan will take the solo part, her teacher, Dr Joan Wootton, will play the orchestral part on a second piano. Sparkling music indeed, and definitely something to look forward to!
The program will not last longer than an hour, and to ensure that our audience is kept really warm, we will serve muscadel and sherry before the performance starts. You may even bring your 'kniekombersies'.
The starting time is 17h30 for 18h00. Tickets at R100 for adults and R20 for students will be available at the venue, the Old Mission Church in Long Street.
Our good friend Peter Kramer of Classics4U in Cape Town will have a selection of their vast catalogue of classical and crossover CDs and DVDs for sale from 16h30 onwards. So bring your cash and credit cards, and take home some wonderful music.
Information about all Music Society activities is available on our Facebook page. We also have a YouTube channel, where we feature a selection of videos from past concerts.
