It is always great to see our young musicians performing. Emma Powell undertook a challenging exam performing four different pieces on three percussion instruments (kit, timpani and marimba), in front of a good sized crowd and an examiner.
The performance at the Christchurch Music Centre Chapel (Barbadoes Street) was a wonderful disply of Emma’s talent and certainly proved to us all that percussionists don’t just “hit” things. The musicianship and skill shown by Emma was a tribute to the many hours she spent practicing for this performance/exam.
The examiner thought so too – congratulations Emma on your EXCELLENCE grade for this exam.
