Children Piano and Violin Recital - Christmas and Classics Vol 1

6 year old: "I love the recital because it reminded me of the nice things like kindness and sharing."
8 year old: "I love the recital because I love to eat all the snacks and apple juice."
5 year old: "I love playing the balloons with my friend!"

Whether it is the music, or the food, or the decoration, we do out best to provide a platform for children to grow and learn music together. The Colours of Music children piano and violin recital, in collaboration with Grande Suono Music Academy, was successfully held on May 31st, 2019, at the school hall of Willowbrook International Preschool.

We welcomed old faces and new faces of the music academy performing for us that day. We could really see that children who have performed in the recital the last term displayed more confidence and and musicality on stage. With the help of our community, we are happy to be able to provide a unique experience for the children to showcase what they have learnt and how much they have grown.

Here are some of our performers that day.

Fiona Osuga, performing London Bridge, 10 Little Indians and Snail Song
Claire Osuga performing Ode to Joy by Beethoven and Swans on the Lake
Nanaka Fukuwara, performing Gavotte by Gossec
Momoka Iwamoto, performing When the Saints go Marching and Buzzing Bees
Kosuke Morinaga, performing Bouree by Hendel

Not to forget teachers performances!

We would like to thank the children who shared their music with us, the parents for being their practice guardians and also Ikuyo Maeda and Willowbrook International preschool who provided support for the facilites to make this event possible.
See you for one more recital this year, exciting things await! ;)
Till then, take care and happy playing!
