A few of the music group attended a concert at the Minster in Newport to hear the pianist Varvara Maggs in Concert.
Born in St. Petersburg she was a legendary child pianist and studied at the St. Petersburg State Conservatoire. She now spends her time giving concerts in Great Britain and St. Petersburgh, Russia. The recital included works by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Mussorgsky. What a fantastic pianist and what a wonderful, enjoyable time we had.
