On the 20th of December I played harp for my last worship service as a Wesley Scholar.
I accompanied the choir (directed by the amazing Angela Currie) for two movements from Britten's A Ceremony of Carols. It was lovely and a lot of fun. I also played J.S Bach's Prelude in C as my solo piece. The rest of the service was filled with readings from the Bible, music played on the piano by the exquisite pianist Caroline Badnall, other choir songs and of course congregational hymns.
After the service, they even gave me a card and a candle to thank me for being a scholar. It was so sweet & kind of them.
I loved my time as a Wesley scholar. Everyone there is so supportive, friendly and interested. Being a Wesley scholar has definitely helped me as a musician through the regular performance opportunities. I was even able to purchase a new instrument with the scholarship money so it has been a huge career boost. I strongly recommend any current UWA music students to apply - you won't regret it!!
