Some of Shrewsbury's most impressive young pianists had the extraordinary experience of playing three concerts in Moscow recently. In-In (7JW), Yuqiao (7AD) and Sean (6DL) performed various compositions solo for the international Philharmonic Children of Future Concert at the Bashmet Center, Moscow.

Partnered with Russian News, 'ORPHEUS 9.2FM' and TV station 'Moscow 24', the performances offered our young musicians the opportunity to show off their skills and talents abroad.

All three students were introduced by Mr Thantip Upatising, the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand to the Russian Federation and honoured the welcome by wowing audiences with the beautiful 'Sweet Words' – a piece composed by His Majesty the late King of Thailand, Bhumibol Adulyadej.

This concert also had a 'surprise section' where Sean performed a short composition called 'The Typewriter' by Leroy Anderson. This composition can be very tricky owing to the speed in which it is played (like a typewriter), but the talented young man impressed with a fantastic rendition.


Overall, the show was a unique, worthwhile experience as well as being extremely enjoyable. At the conclusion of their performances, each student was awarded with a storm of applause by an enthralled audience. These memorable occasions will undoubtedly help our students to take the upward steps musically.

A huge thank you must go to the Shrewsbury Music Department for their ongoing support. However, Ms Irina, Head of Keyboards, was the main driver behind the organisation and execution of the trip. Her knowledge of the industry and her attentive tutelage is invaluable to the department. After 11 years at Shrewsbury, she continues to hone the prodigious talent at our school.
