String Quartet Performance at the Soma High School

At the Baryo Festival, the school festival of Soma High School held at the beginning of September, four members of our string instrument class had a performance on stage. Though the quartet consisted of three violins and a cello due to circumstances (a string quartet usually consists of two violins, a viola and a cello), they performed four pieces including Mickey Mouse March and the first movement from Triptych, a Japanese contemporary masterpiece composed by Yasushi Akutagawa, in front of their teachers and friends.

Risa, Grade 10, the cellist who led the quartet gave us her impressions of the day,

“I was anxious because we had to be ready within the limited time for rehearsals. ”

“It was a good experience to perform in a quartet because we had few opportunities. We had to discuss a lot with other members to make music, but I think we were able to learn ensemble techniques that we can also use in the orchestra.”

“Not many of my school friends had heard our performance before, so they were all surprised. I was happy to receive compliments from the teachers as well!"

We hope that the children will expand their areas of activities and have many experiences with music. We also highly appreciate continuous support given by our GlobalGiving partners — thank you!
