A Strong Future for Eve

19th Jun 2017

Eve Ferrie travelled to Hamilton last week to take part in the 55th Hamilton Eisteddfod. She was thrilled to walk away with 5 gold medals in the following categories: primary school vocal, piano special duet prize with Gilda on piano and Eve singing, and first prizes in the 10, 12, and 14 years and under woodwind. The adjudicator, Monte Mumford (Associate professor of music at University of Northwestern, Minnesota  2005 -2011), was so impressed with Eve’s potential as a saxophonist that she has been invited to take part, as the youngest member, in the 100 saxophones masterclasses and performance to be held at Melbourne University on the weekend 16 July. This is an outstanding result for Eve.  Her hard work, commitment and passion for her music is certainly paying off!
