ROYAL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL PIANO – KEYBOARD CONCERT
On April 8, eleven students from the Australian Keyboard Academy did a piano concert in the Starlight Express Room at the Royal Children’s Hospital.
The concert was a great opportunity to celebrate the fundraising efforts of all the students that performed at the Good Friday Appeal concert two days prior.
The event also helped put smiles on the faces of sick children and their parents. Captain Starlight coordinators commented on the amazing talent and welcomed the Australian Keyboard Academy to return for future performances.
Congratulations to all the performers for putting on an amazing show. The performance at the Royal Children’s Hospital will become an annual event for the Australian Keyboard Academy.
Both the Good Friday Appeal Concert and the performance at the Royal Children’s Hospital is a great example of children helping children and how students commitment to learning music can help other children in our community
Student performers: Vanessa Liao, Rebecca Galea, Olivia Capitanio, Rohan Jacobs, Jakob Kaucki, Justin & Brandon Cassar, Emily Buttigieg, Janelle-Ann Mendoza, Annalisa Fernandez, and Jeremy Boland.
