Alina Kiryayeva, renowned concert pianist, presents a master class at Havelock High School auditori
Alina wowed the audience of Craven County Public School 5th graders from Arthur Edwards Elementary , W.J.Gurganus Elementary, Graham A. Barden Elementary and Havelock Elementary (approximately 500 attendees) as well as another 125 High School Band and Chorus members. They were amazed and mesmerized and now many of them are asking rigorous questions about how the songs they study in class have different stories and musical elements.
She truly sparked some excitement in young children learning an instrument, especially the piano. Not a sound was heard during the performance until they were asked to sing the song they had been taught in preparation for this event to her accompaniment.They had never heard anyone play like Alina live and it truly took them by surprise. Our goal is to provide this level of expert performance to as many of the children in Craven County as possible. The grants and donations we receive make events such as this possible.
Next event: A program to be presented by the Equinox Little Big Band in May.
