Monthly Members' Evening 1
We are happy to announce the first of our monthly Members’ Evenings. We plan to make these Members’ Evenings a regular fixture in the Club calendar. They will take place on the first Monday of every month and will incorporate an interesting event, followed by a buffet with wine. Members will be able to get together in a relaxed atmosphere. At the moment we are very fortunate in being able to offer the ‘Musical Moments’ series of concerts to start those evenings. The ‘Musical Moments’ concerts have been made possible by the very kind cooperation of The Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. We are very privileged in being able to present these young, highly talented musicians who are already making their mark in the music world. This month will feature Jenna Sung, who will be playing solo piano.
Jenna Y Sung started playing piano at the age of three. She proved her talent at a young age by receiving an invitation to play at Carnegie Hall and making her debut with orchestra at age ten. Starting from the age of nine Jenna was the winner of numerous piano competitions and her career has led her to many cities around the world.
Most recently Jenna was invited to perform the Mozart Piano Concerto K. 271 "Jeunehomme" with the Chang-Won Phiharmonic Orchestra conducted by the most renowned conductor in South Korea, Chi Yong Jung.
