Brentwood Cathedral Music
Students from Becket Keys School, Brentwood
Wednesday 19 April 2023 – 1 pm to 1:45 pm
On Wednesday 19 April, we were very pleased to welcome again Isabella, Elliot and Diana, three piano students from Becket Keys School in Brentwood.
We last saw them here with Danilo Mascetti last month, when he gave them a Piano Masterclass.
The students impressed us so much, that we asked them to return and give a Lunchtime Piano Recital; and we were definitely not disappointed with their performances today.
We were treated to a wonderfully varied and enjoyable programme of music, executed to an excellent standard by our three young visitors.
We are most grateful both to them and to Mr Peter Romhany, Director of Music at Becket Keys, for taking time out of their busy school schedule to give us such a splendid lunchtime recital.
