Whangarei piano-students have been working hard this year and give a show case of their progress in Captaine Bourgainville Theatre on Saturday 27 August 2011 at 16:00.
It is going to be an exciting show, because special guests Elmo and Pops (two puppets) have come over from abroad for the Rugby World Cup and were so excited about the show last year that they happily agreed to give their encouraging and humorous comments on the performance and will give a special prize of $100 to the audience’s favourite performance. Apparently Elmo has written a special composition for the occasion! Well, we’ll see (or hear)!
Besides that we have two pianos lined up: the theatre’s Steinway and Boston grand pianos and there will be some works for two pianos also as well as some movements of piano concertos by Mozart and Bach.
But also fans of popular piano will enjoy themselves as there will be some improvisation on the two pianos and the programme is an exciting mix of good modern and classical piano music. In the interval there will be good food and drinks available and children are welcome. Guests may very well make a family event of it. Master of ceremony will be Tony Underwood and there is also an award for the Piano Student of the year 2011.
The ticket prize is a friendly $5 to be bought at the door or in advance from Art Zegelaar School of Piano 09 430 8533
