ABOUT THIS EVENT
Following last year’s successful debut of the YST Electone Orchestra, Piano majors return to the stage to perform orchestral works on the conservatory’s state of the art fleet of Yamaha Stagea Electones. Tonight’s programme reveals legendary characters in story telling contexts as imaginative as they are diverse: an outlaw from the American Wild West, seductive Sirens from Greek mythology and the sublime ode to St Anthony, now immortalised by the genius variation treatment of Brahms.
