PIANO BRAT PACK - AN ELECTION DAY CONCERT
 
Wednesday 8 May 18:00
Public Holiday - National Election Day 2019
 

Six top young pianists in various stages of their undergraduate and post-graduate studies at the UP Music School are featured in this enjoyable programme of classical piano hits.

Salon Music has had a most successful association, on various levels, with the University of Pretoria over the past 25 years. We are therefore proud to stage a follow-up of a project of the 2002 Piano Brat Pack performance at the Musaion, as well as the CD recording, which formed part of the 34 CD’s on the Salon Music label.

Six students of the following staff members have been chosen for this year’s Brat Pack: Prof. Wessel van Wyk, Dr. Bryan Wallick, Dr. Tessa Rhoodie and Prof. Ben Schoeman (himself an ex-Brat Pack member).

The pianists featured on this year’s programme are: Kate Watson, Rosemary Lemmer, Brian Bae, Stern Bezuidenhout, Emile Vermeulen and André Breet. Four of these pianists also formed part of the recent Piano Extravaganza performances.

Salon Music is proud to present our patrons with yet another winning compilation of ‘music for a rainy day’ - moving, memorable and magical music making will be performed to celebrate our 25th birthday on our magnificent Steinway in Brooklyn Theatre.
