The evening kicked off with an impromptu variation on a theme of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, duetted by Marc Jenner and Michael Seath. Isaac also treated us to a splendid rendition of the Theme from Game of Thrones, the grand piano sounding particularly resonant in the foyer. Maggie Leung’s rendition of Beethoven’s Pathetique was very moving, as was Isabelle Lloyd’s playing of Bouree 1 and Apres un rêve by Fauré.
Will O’Brien’s voice was shown off to great effect by his choice of Dusk till Dawn. Emily Beck and Annabelle Bowey also duetted, their voices in delightful harmony, including the quirky and charming Awkward Duet. Both Stephen Chooi and Michael Seath played some exciting Debussy, and they both faced the challenge of sight-reading the soundtrack for Vertigo. James Read hit a more mellow tone with his guitar playing on Everything Has Changed.
A huge thank you to Rebecca Shaw, Emily Beck and Michael Seath for organising the evening and to Michael for compering such an entertaining and supportive evening.
