Cape Philharmonic Orchestra Outing
Pinelands High School Grade 10-12 Music students attended a rehearsal of the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra on Thursday 28 August 2017. They watched a performance by a 19 year old virtuoso trumpeter, Lucienne Renaudin, who performed Concerto for Trumpet by Hummel.
The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra accompanied Lucienne. The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1914 and is the most versatile and active orchestra in Cape Town, contributing to Cape Town's global status. In addition they performed Mozart's Overture, La Nozze di Figaro and Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, Eroica which both form part of the music syllabus.
Lucienne has received many music accolades, the first of which she received when she was only 11 years old. She has performed with professional orchestras across the world such as in France, London, Moscow, Germany and Finland. She is also an accomplished jazz musician.
The music students had a most enjoyable time meeting professional local musicians and those from overseas and were in admiration of the high level of performance.
