On the evening of 30 June, Upper 6th Form Music pupil Miles MacLachlan took part in a Charity Piano Recital in the Russell Hall.
Raising funds for the Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House Piano Fund, the recital featured renowned piano teacher, Loc Mai Yuen Brooker, and two of her pupils, Miles and Duncan Ford. The programme, which was very varied, featured music from Bach all the way through to Satie.
As the pieces were presented each performer gave some insight to the composers’ work which helped to provide the context in which the music was originally composed. The three performers made wonderful use of the wide range of dynamics and sonorities which the beautiful Steinway piano can produce. During the interval the audience were treated to wine and tasty refreshments provided by the Friends of Wisbech Grammar School.
