A group of Mohawk College music students performed at the Hamilton Public Library at noon on Friday, Dec. 1. Among the performers were two solo pianists as well as two ensembles. The ensembles consisted of a duet for two flutes and a duet for flute and guitar.
The performances were approximately 10 minutes in length and were done in preparation for music recitals the students must do at the end of the school year. Those recitals are meant to be approximately 45 minutes long, played at the college’s McIntyre Performing Arts Centre.
The college’s Music program coordinator, Jamshed Turel, is in charge of the college’s music ensembles.
“[The music program] has about 20 ensembles, most of which have different instructors that lead those ensembles,” said Turel. “The Hamilton Public Library is one of our partners, so we do monthly performances at noon-hour on Fridays at the Hamilton Public Library.”
Rianna Koster, a flutist, is one of the music students who performed at the library. She did a duet with Amanda Jansen, another flutist and music student. Together they performed Tchaikovsky’s Russian March and Dance Of The Fairies.
“We’ve played here a couple of times each year for the past three years we have been here at Mohawk,” said Koster.
