Four of Trinity’s top musicians returned to Venice during the October half term to resume the annual recital series, which has been postponed in recent years due to Covid.  

The recital series is a remarkable opportunity for our talented young musicians to experience the professional lives of performing artists and the students gave some outstanding performances throughout the tour. The Venetian audiences were absolutely delighted and were very pleased to see us return to Venice. 

Upper Sixth students Edward Warner (our Steinway Scholar 2021), Alexander Chan and Jenson Wong as well as returning student Ming-Ho Cheung – who was last year’s Trinity Musician of the Year – were invited to perform at some of the top locations in Venice over the course of six days. These included the historical Palazzo Cavagnis, Palazzo Albrizzi and Villa Roberti 

Edward Warner said, “This chamber music tour, to Venice, would have been an amazing experience for any young musician and I feel incredibly privileged to have been able to go on it and have the opportunity to perform and learn in venues with such rich history to them, as well as to experience the working life of a musician to such a first-hand degree.”  

Alexander Chan said, “Going to Venice to perform in prestigious concerts was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was both extremely challenging and rewarding. The city and concert venues were stunning, my favourite being our second concert at Villa Roberti. I will truly miss performing in and exploring Venice, but it is an experience I will remember forever.”  

Jenson Wong said, “Under the guidance of the teachers, I was able to learn more about how to better integrate my sound in chamber groups, such as our piano quartet and a duet with Alex. I had the privilege to perform in beautiful venues with my friends”.  

Congratulations to all musicians on a successful tour.
