It was such a delight to welcome all the friends and family of the Chamber Music Academy for the end of the performance. This gave the pupils the opportunity to not only showcase some of the pieces that they have been working on, but also demonstrate how their groups have developed and how each pupil has grown as chamber musicians.
With a range of composers from Mozart to Brahms and a mixture of ensemble sizes ranging from a piano trio to a string octet, there was plenty of variety to delight the audience. The pupils had already had a busy morning with coaching from the Jubilee Quartet and the cellist of the Chilingirian Quartet, Stephen Orton and a dramatic concert performance by the Jubilees of Haydn Op.20 No.1 but everyone was enthusiastic to perform and, equally importantly, listen to their peers on a beautifully sunny Saturday afternoon.
