Oscar Trott’s interpretation of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue mesmerised listeners, capturing the piece’s essence with his accomplished technique and expressive performance.

A highlight of the evening was the premiere of Ruvin Meda’s newly commissioned piece, a testament to his talent as a composer. The Concert Overture impressed with its melodic richness and orchestral brilliance, earning a standing ovation from the audience.

Alexander Gillan’s performance of Max Bruch’s Concerto for Violin in G Minor highlighted the concerto’s timeless beauty, while James Dicker’s rendition of César Franck’s Symphonic Variations for Piano and Orchestra demonstrated his virtuosity and emotional depth.

Throughout the evening, the performers received well-deserved ovations, with compliments pouring in from the professional orchestra accompanying them. Special recognition is also due to the students who played alongside the professionals in the orchestra, showcasing their own remarkable musicianship.
