The Great Gatsby summer concert:
The Great Gatsby theme really turned this evening into a delightful musical party evening and we all had a fabulous time!
There was such a magnificent atmosphere and we all felt a little bit like being transported back to the 1920s in Long Island NY!
A wonderful evening with lots of conversation, music and fun!
We started the evening with Tanay performing the Titanic’s theme song: “My heart will go on!”
Tanay gave a stunning rendition and it is really an apt piece of music as it reminds us once again of DiCaprio, bringing our minds back to the Great Gatsby theme!
Excellent performance Tanay – you played superbly!
Peter performed the immortal “Romance in E minor” on the classical guitar and really brought the haunting melody to life at this concert! Afterwards I joined Peter and we did a Blues in A called “Peter’s Blues”. Peter played some really tasty blues licks and everyone enjoyed it thoroughly!
Meng performed “German Dance” by Franz Schubert and “Swan Lake” by Tchaikovsky. A very nice performance and everyone loved the music!
Tasha also performed “German Dance” by Franz Schubert and played it very nicely! Well done Tasha!
We then listened to “Allegro from Sonatina in C opus 36 No1” by Clementi. Terry is getting better and better at performing each and every time and we are all VERY PROUD of his persistance and dedication. Excellent work Terry!
Marie-Danielle performed “Prelude in C” by Bach. A very satisfactory rendition and Marie-Danielle was very happy too!
Next up Alex performed”A Stormy Coast” by Walter Carroll. Very well performed with great emotion! Excellent work Alex – keep it up!
Julia then performed a surprise piece of music and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! She received a roaring applause!
Another blues! Yes, Henry played some wonderful dominant seventh arpeggios and pentatonic/blues licks over a blues progression and really performed beautifully. Proud of your achievement Henry – and we look forward to the next performance!

Fang-Chun who is studying art in London (at the time of writing), performed a magnificent version of Prelude from Partita I by Bach. Very well done Fang-Chun – excellent work!
Holly then proceeded to perform “Big Secret” by Michael Nyman. A wonderful performance – we all enjoyed it and look forward to hearing more from Holly!
A truly electric night filled with delight!
It was a very inspiring evening and we all enjoyed top-quality Champagne and great conversation afterwards!
Everyone gave their best performance and the evening was just a BIG success!
Looking forward to the next night… back to practice and preparing for more success!
Thank you so much for reading and we look forward to seeing you at next event! – Stefan Joubert
