Two of our Grade 10 girls, Tamsin Haines and Jessica Chantler, travelled to Johannesburg last weekend to take part in the annual Philip H. Moore Music Competition, at Jeppe High School for Girls.
“This competition is open to entrants from around the country,” says Mrs Lee-Ann Nelson, one of our Music teachers. “Tamsin and Jessica were both awarded Gold Certificates and did St John’s D.S.G. proud with their confident and polished performances.”
“After the certificates were awarded, we drove to the University of Pretoria, where the girls attended a Piano Masterclass in the Musaion with Professor Joseph Stanford. They both received excellent advice on how to further improve their playing.” A big ‘well done’ to both these girls, and ‘thank you’ to Mrs Lee-Ann Nelson for accompanying them.
