Hayley's top of the hour
A stunning concert by four of the Elder Conservatorium's top students ended a very successful year of Lunch Hour concerts at Elder Hall.
The Allans Classical Music Awards, sponsored by Allans Music, was the culmination of a competition open to all undergraduate and Honours students at the Elder Conservatorium.
First prize was awarded to Hayley Radke (flute), with second prize going to Fleur Green (marimba). Finalist prizes were also awarded to Katrina Hermman (French horn) and Sky Ingram (soprano).
The Manager of Allans Music, Tony Jeffries, was on hand to present the prizes, which were announced by Elder Professor of Music and Dean of the Elder Conservatorium, Professor Charles Bodman Rae, who chaired the judging panel.
Hayley Radke and Fleur Green are both Honours students who have just returned from overseas study tours. Hayley attended masterclasses in London, Paris and Switzerland as part of the Flutes of Adelaide tour led by Head of Woodwind Elizabeth Koch, while Fleur attended a short study course at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and a percussion conference in Ohio, Columbus as part of Adelaide's renowned percussion ensemble led by Head of Percussion Jim Bailey.
The new series of lunch hour concerts will be launched by Macquarie Trio Australia in Elder Hall on Friday March 17, 2006. Detailed concert brochures will be available in mid-January.
