Seychelles School of Music presents its second classical guitar recital

Seychelles School of Music presents its second classical guitar recital ( Under the conduct of music instructor Francois Victor, a second classical guitar end-of-term recital was held over the weekend at the National Conservatoire Performing Arts, Mont Fleuri Mahe. Shanae, the master of ceremony and also a classical guitar student, once again welcomed the numerous parents, friends, and families that had come in greater numbers this time to watch the students perform.

The aim of the termly recital is to build students' confidence in playing in front of an audience and for each student no matter what level they are at, and to have a repertoire that they can enjoy playing while they learn the techniques of playing the classical guitar.

The first performance was set off with Salina Porteous playing “Balloon Race,” Jefferson Andre played “Branle d'Ecosse,” Jean-Luc Grandcourt performed “Leccion” and also accompanied Francois Victor with “One Hand, One Heart.” Mary Chang-Pen-Tive who also participated in the Children's Friendship Festival in Seattle played “Annie's Song/I am a Rock.” Others student performers included Alisha Ernesta, Shariq Lespoir and Amos Alexis.

The students then performed a classical ensemble together playing “Old Swansea Town, Noche en Los Andes and Ballet.”

The recital ended with Ocean Sounds (senior classical ensemble) playing a medley of songs including “Taconeado, Calypso, Faz Hoje Um Ano, Kontredans Avan Kat, Sega, Kotis and Quebra Cabecas.”

The Head of Progam at NCPA, Mr. Jerry Souris, and instructor, Mr. Giovanni Ally, was also at the recital to offer support to the students.

In a short interview, Francois Victor who is the instructor behind the students and in putting together the recital with his team expressed the desire to see this recital take a different level, whereby he would like to see the next performance take place in a hotel resort property. This would give the students exposure to a wider crowd while allowing visitors to the country to enjoy a local classical guitar performance. Discussions has already been initiated with the Meridien Hotels and the school would welcome any hotel property who will be keen to assist them with this project.

Music is just one of the many activities that brings people together and allows a skill to be developed. Such activities should be fully encouraged and the school wishes to see more students coming forward to learn how to play an instrument.
