Madeleine Easton, one of the most sought-after baroque violinists on the international scene, paid a most welcome visit to her old school on Thursday and Friday, 8-9 May. Her musical gift to the school, a ravishing performance of the ‘Chaconne’ from Bach’s Partita BWV 1004, will long live in our memory.
On Thursday, 27 March the school was in virtual lockdown: Simone Young, Australia’s superstar conductor, had come to the Con High. Giving most generously of her time, Simone Young conducted, tutored and discussed with Con High students aspects of her remarkable career, in particular, just what it takes to succeed that most demanding of musical métiers. She is pictured in the Verbrugghen Hall with Yr 12 student, Noam Yaffe.
