The audience in St Margaret’s Church were dazzled by the virtuosity of the four young musicians in the first concert of the Spring Festival today. All have studied at local schools and today they performed a variety of solo and accompanied pieces from composers such as Bach, Haydn and Smetana. Elliot Corner (viola), Mario Jaeckle (violin) and the two sisters Dilara and Ayla Sahin (cello and violin) are seen receiving Awards of £100 each from Jean Talbot (one of the Sponsors of the concert) on behalf of Rottingdean Arts to support their studies. Roy Wales (Festival Director) commended both their technical ability and their musicality and wished them well in their future musical studies.
This concert was sponsored by Jean Talbot and Simon Hitchings of St Aubin’s School.
