Congratulations to Eve Ferrie who is finding great success since beginning the saxophone this year! On Wednesday, Eve took part in the 12 and under brass & woodwind section of the Waverley Eisteddfod. She was the only saxophonist, and was competing against trombone, trumpet , clarinet, oboe and flute players. She played a jazz piece and walked away with the first prize gold medal! The adjudicator commented on her mature sense of rhythm and phrasing.
Two weeks ago, she competed in the 14 and under vocal section of the Waverley Eisteddfod. As the youngest competitor and the only one who has never had a singing lesson, she did extremely well to receive an honourable mention. She accompanied herself on the piano and performed a wonderful rendition of the song “Misty” by Erroll Garner. Well done to Eve – she is working hard to improve her skills and the hard work is certainly paying off!
