At the beginning of June, six of ‘The Friends’ Committee were among the very appreciative audience that thoroughly enjoyed a piano recital by Maria Kustas, hosted by Derek and Rosanne Lorkin, to raise funds for us. We readily agreed at our next committee to accept Derek and Rosanne’s generous offer to invite Maria back in October!
Maria has won many international piano competitions including the Piano Campus in France, the Delia Steinberg in Spain and, here in the UK, the Tunbridge Wells. She graduated from the Central Music School of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory in 2013 and then studied at the Royal College of Music graduating in 2017 with a Batchelor in Music and has recently completed a Master of Music in Performance there.
The recital will last around an hour and light refreshments will be provided at the conclusion, with a retiring collection taken – all of which will go to ‘The Friends’. It will be held in the music studio at Derek and Rosanne’s home, 195 Shrub End Road Colchester CO3 4RH at 3pm with Maria playing their Bluthner concert grand.
Tickets are strictly limited and only obtainable from our chairman Nigel Chapman email firstname.lastname@example.org.
