Tagiev Youth Chamber Orchestra

Have you Ever been in a situation where you wanted the Time to Stop and stay at that Moment for more Time?? Or have you been to an event or a concert and wanted it to continue for more time?? 

This is exactly what happened to me in Tagiev Youth Chamber Orchestra

It was a Last minute Decision for me to attend this Event after inviting my Dear Friend Kiralee to come with me to the Event since she plays the Fluit and she participate in a band as well .. 

Didn't know what to expect since it was my first time to attend such events and to be frank i was not expecting much!!!

But these Young Musicians Blew me Away with their sensational performances .. I was really amazed of how good they were .. and I don't think I would do them justice whatever I write about them because they were Great ..

The Event was on a Sunday Evening at the Rosalie Baptiste Church - 97 Fernberg Road, Paddington.
The date was the 17th of June 2012.

The event was a fundraising Event for the Brisbane International Youth Music Festival to be held in Brisbane for the first time on 25th and 26th of August 2012.

The Tagiev orchestra has toured internationally on several occasions including performances in New York and recently in St. Petersburg. Emin’s idea is to have a classical music festival for young performers that will contribute to further advancing Brisbane as a cultural center of international repute for emerging and established Australian and international artists.

They Performed 10 Musical Pieces for us and as I said i wanted them to carry on and never stop!!

Firstly The Tagiev Junior Ensemble Started the Concert by Playing Three Musical Pieces ..

The first Piece was A. Vivaldi - Concerto for Two Violins in A-min, 1st Movt. 

The Next Two Pieces were: A. Vivaldi - Violin Concerto in A-min, 1st Movt.
The First Piece was a Soloist by Sophia Di Lucchio. 

The Soloist for the Second was : Grace Wu

The concertmaster for this part was Fiona Qui.

In these Three performances I had Goose Bumps Throughout each single performance .. 

Next It was Time for the Tagiev Chamber Orchestra.

The concertmaster was Daniel Tagiev

The Pieces Played were: 

1- A. Vivaldi - Concerto for Two Cellos, 3rd Movt.
