The Gloucester Music Club held its first series of recitals for 2018-2019 at Orléans United Church last week, during which 34 young musicians and vocalists were able to show off their immense talent. The recitals were spread out over three sessions.

The first session, which took place on Friday, Nov. 23, featured 11 pianists, one violinist, one cellist and a vocalist. The second session on Saturday afternoon had 12 pianists on the program along with one cellist and one violinist. The third and final session, which took place Saturday evening, featured 13 pianists and seven vocalists.

After being being welcomed to the recital by Felix Xu, the audience was treated to a performance of Schumann’s Knect Ruprect op. 28, no. 12 by Daniel Liu which was one of the highlights of the evening.

Vocal performances ranged from the whimsical – Computer Cat, sung by Sabrina Meng – to the sublime The Path to the Moon, sung by Rylie MacDonell.

One of the strongest vocal performances of the evening was delivered by Adelaine Carvallo who sang Michael Head’s A Blackbird Singing.

The Grade 11 St. Peter High School has landed a lead role in the St. Peter Players upcoming production of Shrek: The Musical.

Other notable vocal performances were turned in by Jesse Nasmith who sang Close Every Door by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Luc Cormier who sang Sea Fever by John Ireland.

Nasmith is a Grade 12 student at Colonel By Secondary School. The Blackburn Hamlet resident only started singing a year ago when he auditioned for a role in his high school’s production of Footloose. The experience made him fall in love with musical theatre and he recently landed a lead role in Colonel By’s upcoming production of Chicago.

Other vocal performances were turned in by Grace St. Germain who sang Gee, I’m Glad I’m No One Else But Me from the play Anne of Green Gables and Ellison Butler who sang Maybe from the play Annie.

Other highlights included Naomi Li’s performance of Gentle Breeze by Joanne Bender; Darren Liu’s recital of Rigadoon in A Minor by Babell; Felix Xu’s rendition of Bourée in F Major by Telemann and Chloe Hataley’s performance of Wedding Day at Trauldhagen which brought the program to a close.
