Last Saturday night I had the pleasure of attending KES alumnus (2014) Hsiu-Ping (Patrick) Wu'sgraduation recital at Dalhousie University Fountain School of Performing Arts. A talented violinist, Patrick was a cornerstone of our music programme during his tenure at our School. He was featured in our Fall 2018 Life Connections magazine and, since then, he has completed his Bachelor of Music degree and has been accepted to take his Master’s degree in composition at the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Boston next fall. It warms my heart to follow Patrick's path into music, and I'm not alone: As I entered the well-attended Sir James Dunn Theatre, I spotted Tai-Yu (Debby) Chao (Head Girl 2013), and walking in right behind me and my wife was Erin Davison (2012) and Francis Laing (2012). We all watched and listened intently as Patrick bowed his way through an impressive repertoire with passion and technical prowess, set against the background piano accompaniment played by Danbee Ko. To celebrate our newest King's-Edgehill music grad, I offer this YouTube link to his performance . Patrick is the featured soloist in the first half of the recital and he also plays a supportive role in the second half which features a fellow music grad. I'm sure you will agree that his talent is great and his ongoing success is eminent. Please click here to view the recital programme.
