STUDENTS from the Mojacar Municipal Music School gave an impressive performance for this year’s traditional piano concert in honour of Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of music.
Taking advantage of the good weather, the event was staged at midday in Mojacar village’s Plaza del Parterre below the walls of the church.
The youngsters performed pieces by some of the great composers, including Beethoven and Menke. The students chose the pieces themselves under the guidance of their teacher, Yolanda Parra Niederhauser.
The young pianists also performed lighter works, among them the themes from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Beauty and the Beast and Over the Rainbow.
The Saint Cecilia concert is just one of the public performances given by music school students over the year. The next will be a concert with all the younger students accompanied by a guitar ensemble and an instrumental group on December 19 at 6.30pm in the evening in the school auditorium.
