An appreciative audience of 65 enjoyed an exceptional evening of music at the Wenoma studio recently.

Zen Zeng entranced the audience with piano compositions reflecting her interest in Spanish flamenco and folklore. The new baby grand piano had a thorough work out at the hands of this internationally recognised performer and words fail in describing the beautiful music that filled the room.

The second half of the concert was a change in pace with the beautiful, bubbly Bridget a’Beckett and her friend, Eloise Oxer, singing a bracket of popular songs  accompanied by Zen.  The voices harmonised perfectly and the musicians’ ‘joie de vivre” and skill shone through in their performance.

To conclude the concert Bridget interviewed Zen. This  gave the audience an appreciation of Zen’s drive and dedication to her musical studies.

All present were very grateful to have the opportunity to experience a musical evening of such calibre and thank the a’Beckett family for making it possible.

This concert concludes the Artists on Parade winter program.  It is hoped that the next concert will be in  November, inspired by Edith Piaff and sung by Marie Cecile Henderson accompanied by Carmel Ryan.

The next big event at  Artists on Parade is an ‘All Creatures Great and Small” exhibition which will be opened between 2 and 4 pm on the 26th July. All members of the community are welcome to attend. Afternoon tea will be provided.
