The Accompanists’ Guild of SA provides an opportunity for 6 to 8 Secondary School pianists to gain experience in the art of accompanying through the Young Accompanists’ Showcase (YAS). This project pairs the piano student with a professional soloist with whom they rehearse and perform. All soloists in 2012 will be wind players.

YAS pianists are committed to performances on these dates:

(1) Masterclass with Elizabeth Koch OAM on 3 June, 2:30pm Marryatville High School

(2) Concert on 24 June, 2:30pm Marryatville High School

(3) Concert on 29 September, 1:45pm Cynthia Poulton Hall, St Peter’s Cathedral, North Adelaide (during 2012 Festival of Accompanists)

Full details of the program, and eligibility requirements can be found on the YAS Application Form.

The Soloists are professional performers and teachers, and include: Samantha Hennessy – flute; Amanda Lovelock – clarinet; Josie Hawkes – bassoon; Howard Parkinson – trombone.

Gina Macri is the Young Accompanists’ Showcase convenor.
