Music Society's Composers' Evening

Music Society's Composers' Evening

Approximately 130 people tilled the music room to capacity on Wednesday, July 29, for the second annual composers evening. A varied programme, which ranged from serious to whimsical, was obviously thoroughly enjoyed.

The evening began with works composed for the String Orchestra; which was conducted by Mr Farquhar. "Nocturne", by Suzanne Green, the Society's President, included woodwind in its orchestration. Other works were for piano solo, song with piano accompaniment, instrument and piano accompaniment, string quartet, and choir.

Fifteen composers contributed to the evening's entertainment, some having two or more works performed.

All the works were performed by students. An interesting feature was that not all the composers came from the Music Department. Science students, in particular, were prominent.

This very interesting and successful evening was an improvement even on last year's, and is now a definite feature of the Music Society.
