Centre: Lixin Zhang - Right: Muse Ye

This year we are very proud that two BHS students, Lixin Zhang (Yr13, SMP Piano) and Muse Ye (SMP Piano, left in 2014) have reached the final of the National Concerto Competition, a prestigious event open to all pianists under the age of 25. 

This will take place on Saturday 3rd March at The Luney Auditorium, St Margaret's College where each finalist will perform a full concerto accompanied by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Northey.

One of our chamber music groups from last year will be playing in the concert whilst the judges retire to deliberate over their decision. Plenty for us to celebrate here.

It would be great to have a strong Burnside presence in the audience to support Lixin and Muse especially.

Tickets are available through ticketek: 

I believe there is a $10 discount price for groups of 10 or more.
