Afternoon concert

Dear All,

I am very happy to share with you this event where one of very young members, Sue, will be performing. A great opportunity to meet and have a drink after the concert for those who can make it. Also drinks are available at the venue.

Sue is presenting a joint piano recital with a fellow pianist, Rowan Vince. Programme will consist of works from the romantic period and will aim to feature diversity of composing styles in the 19th century. For those who already know her member as 'Sue', she will be using her Korean name, 'Soo-youn' for performance purposes. Tickets cost £5 at the door.

I hope you can join us for her first joint recital.

Performers- 

Soo-youn Lee is a Korean- Australian pianist based in London. Her mentors include distinguished pianists Ronald Farren-Price, a student of Claudio Arrau and Stephen McIntyre, a student of Nadia Boulanger and Arturo Benedetti Michangeli. 

Whilst in her last year of school, Soo-youn was admitted to Melbourne University Program for High achieving Students and gained the highest performance mark in her year level. In the same year, Soo-youn was the top piano student in the state following VCE (equivalent to GCSE) examinations. Since then she has appeared with the Melbourne Sinfonia and Preston Symphony as a soloist and performed in chamber music concerts with members of Melbourne Symphony and Australian opera. Soo-youn was one of twenty pianists chosen to participate in piano workshops given by the juries of Sydney International Piano Competition. 

Before coming to London Soo-youn achieved the honour of best performance student in final year upon graduation and took part in Australian National Academy’s piano program. This was followed by performances in Melbourne Concert Hall which was broadcast on TV and radio. Other appearances include recitals for members of Australian parliament and chancellors of Australian universities. Currently Soo-youn is active as a performer, teacher and a chamber musician. She has a M.Mus degree in piano performance from Melbourne University. 

Born in Melbourne, Australia, and now based in the UK, Rowan Vince is a pianist, keyboardist, composer and software engineer. He studied piano with Trevor Barnard and organ with John Mallinson at the University of Melbourne, and later studied composition with Maestro Joe Paparone. He holds a BMus(Hons) in pianoforte performance and a BSc in computer science. Rowan received the outstanding pianist award in the 1996 Dandenong Festival of Music and Art for Youth, and more recently the Melbourne Fringe Festival Music Award in 2005 and in 2008 for his eclectic "Vince in Recital" piano concerts. Alongside his solo piano work, Rowan has appeared with various diverse groups including the Victorian Youth Symphony Orchestra, Q chamber ensemble, cabaret-opera act "Profane Primadonnas", and indie-pop band Wellyn. He has repetiteured for Melbourne Opera and was the accompanist for the Essendon Choral Society for 10 years. He has released an independent CD, "Rhapsodic Piano from Bach to Gershwin and Beyond". 

Rowan's work is directed at presenting the art of the keyboard instrument in exciting, off beat, and technologically savvy ways. He premierred his work "Barbarian" for pipe organ, synthesizer, and computer at the Melbourne Town Hall in 2010. In 2011 he teamed up with New Zealand tenor Timoti Bramley to perform "New Gospel", an electro-acoustic pastiche of opera, gospel, and jazz. More outlandish performances include playing death metal on a pipe organ in the Melbourne International Arts Festival and destroying a piano after performing Schumann's half hour long Fantasie Op. 17.

    Thank you for coming, much appreciated. Sorry I didn't get to chat to anyone, I wasn't sure who was part of the group! I hope to promote future concerts much more extensively and you have been great.

    Dear All,

    I will be there around 3:45. Maybe we could have a chat before the concert as I will not be able to stay after the concert.

    Best wishes,

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
