The British High Commission and the Brunei Music Society are bringing in British violinist Sebastian See-Schierenberg to play before a Brunei audience at a concert on Saturday 6 June 2009. It will begin at 7:30 in the evening at the Orchid Garden Hotel.
The British High Commissioner, John Saville said: “We are pleased to work with the Brunei Music Society in bringing in Sebastian and Susana to show their work in Brunei. We are looking forward to the concert and I am sure the audience will enjoy it.”
Playing with a fine old Dutch violin by maker Hendrik Jacobs of Amsterdam, dating back to 1690, the recitals will comprise of a selection of some of the most beautiful repertoire for violin and piano duos and piano solos by Alfredo Oyaguez. The concert will be presented by Susana Galván, who will provide the audience with fascinating insights into the music business, unbelievable facts about the composers and plenty of audience entertainment.
John Dalman, Vice Chairman of the Brunei Music Society said: “The artists have prepared a delightful programme for our enjoyment. The violin is a wonderfully rich yet subtle instrument and we do not have many opportunities to hear it played by musicians with international reputation. We are very grateful to the British High Commission for the suggestion and sponsorship of this event. With the talented Alfredo on piano and an insightful presentation by Susana, it will be an evening to remember.”
Tickets are now on sale from the Brunei Music Society costing $25 for non-members; $20 for members and $10 for students. Please send SMS to 8824850 or 8883358 or email to email@example.com
Tickets can also be purchased at the British High Commission from 3:00 to 5:00pm from Monday to Thursday.
