Wenny performed Carl Vine’s Anna Landa Preludes: Short Story and Thumper, followed by Moszkowski’s Caprice Espagnol.
“Wenny has enjoyed quite a remarkable year so far,” says Roseville College Head of Music Mrs Noni Katada, referring to Wenny’s success in this competition as well as her recent masterclass at the College with one of Australia’s finest and most admirable musicians, pianist Mr Simon Tedeschi.

“Wenny’s piano performance of Carl Vine’s Anna Landa Preludes: Short Story and Thumper combined expressive
phrasing, rhythmic vitality and sensitivity to style. In addition, her dynamic interpretation of Moszkowski’s Caprice
Espagnol explored Spanish nuances and highlighted Wenny’s maturity as a performer,” Mrs Katada says.

Prior Roseville College winners are:

2011 - Roseville College 2011 Music Captain, Sophie Podrasky, on violin
2012 - Roseville College 2012 Music Captain, Chermaine Chew, on piano
2013 - Roseville College graduate, Jessica An, on violin (with a unanimous result)
2015 - Roseville College graduate, Christina Kim, on cello

The annual scholarship was inaugurated in memory of Gordon Waterhouse, a highly esteemed member of the Rotary Club of Chatswood (www.chatswoodrotary.org.au) who dedicated his life to music and service above himself. The popular competition is contested by talented young musicians from six local schools and it provides students with an opportunity to be recognised for both performance excellence and service to music within their school community.

As this year’s winner, Wenny receives a $2,000 grant towards her music education, presented by the President of Chatswood Rotary Club. The 2017 event was held on Wednesday 14 June, at the Zenith Theatre in Chatswood.
