Last Tuesday Atherton State High
School music studies were very lucky to receive the opportunity to attend a
workshop and watch a concert from two world class touring musicians. Simone Easthope, a Soprano Opera Singer and
Benjamin Moser a Concert Pianist have both toured the world as prize winning
musicians after studying their art at the Julliard School of Music in New
York. ASHS music students were
captivated by a world class performance from the pair, which took the audience
on a stimulating musical journey. They then shared stories of their success and
students were able to ask questions about their careers and influences as
musicians. Following that, a few lucky
(and brave) students were able to perform for and workshop with Simone and Ben.
They offered helpful performance tips, and encouraged students to find
confidence within themselves as musicians.
Overall the workshop was an inspiring insight into the career of touring
world class musicians.
