Twin cellists begin national tour
Two of the University of Adelaide's celebrated recent music graduates - twin cellists Pei-Jee Ng and Pei-Sian Ng - are returning to Australia for a national tour.
Winners of the Elder Conservatorium and Victoria League scholarships to study at the Royal Northern College of Music in the UK, the Ng twins will begin their national tour on Saturday 30 June at the Adelaide Town Hall.
Joining the twins on their tour is Melbourne-born, Julliard-trained gifted pianist David Tong. Works by Barrière, Chopin, Rachmaninov and Elena Kats-Chernin will feature.
The tour follows the recent news that Pei-Sian Ng has won the First Prize of £5000 and Gold Medal at the 55th Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL) Annual Music Competition. He joins an illustrious list of cellists who have won the competition.
Pei-Sian also won the ROSL Award for Strings and the Tait Memorial Scholarship for an Australian musician - taking his total prize money to £7000.
The Ng twins' national tour concludes at the Governor's Ballroom in Perth on 22 July.
