On the evening of Sunday March 20th in Silk Hall, Radley College, joined by pianists from St Paul’s Girls’ School, presented the 2016 ‘Piano Extravaganza’, on the theme of ‘English Music’. One hundred pianists precisely took part – boys, dons, children of dons and partners. They ranged in age from seven to sixty and, in ability, from pre-Grade 1 to Professional.
This was a wonderful evening, organised by AJAW: with pieces performed including George Butterworth songs (in his Centenary Year), an Elizabethan Serenade, a Beatles Medley and ‘Last Night of the Proms’-style favourites (above), ‘Fantasia on British Sea Songs’ and ‘Land of Hope and Glory'.
