Final RCM Masters Recital @ Recital Hall, Royal College of Music | United Kingdom

Please join me for my final Masters of Performance recital at the RCM, the culmination of 2 years of study! Joining me will be the excellent Leanne Singh-Levett (piano) and Laura Balboa (violin). It will be in the Recital Hall, 5pm Tuesday 7 June – as it is an exam, please do arrive a little early if you can.

Alongside some of my current favourite songs and arias, the recital will also feature a piece by RCM composition graduate and fellow Kiwi Andrew Baldwin, a hauntingly beautiful musical setting of a letter home from an ANZAC soldier during World War I. Andrew’s piece was one of the winners of the Gallipoli Songs Competition in 2014, to mark the centenary of WWI – do come along to hear our rendition of it.

Hope to see you there!
