Scholars Concert 2018
Wednesday 31st January 2018
Guildhall School of Music & Drama
Guildhall School holds a number of events for supporters during the year. The Scholars Concert in the Silk Street Music Hall is quite intimate with a variety of short performances from highly talented students. The Concert started with a jazz quartet supporting a remarkable vocalist, opening with "Pennies From Heaven"; an oboist and pianist performed Bozza's "Fantasie Pastorale", before 2nd year actors provided a hilarious Comic Interlude. An outstanding mezzo soprano sang two pieces from The Marriage of Figaro and The Barber of Seville before the Concert closed with a finale from two pianists demonstrating their virtuosity on the Steinway. After the Concert, we had the opportunity to meet the performers and other students who all had the same message; without the support from livery companies and other donors, they would not be able to study at Guildhall School. A very special evening.
