Perth Concert Hall to home the 2019 Performing Arts Perspectives

PERTH Concert Hall will host the 23rd annual Performing Arts Perspectives performance on March 27 and violinist Emmalena Huning will be one of 21 students to perform on WA’s iconic stage.

The 18-year-old musician was among eight dance, eight drama and five music students who auditioned and were selected to perform, based on their 2018 WACE scores.

The evening will feature each of the students’ solo work to highlight benchmark achievements in performance across the three disciplines.

Miss Huning, who has been a violinist for 14 years, said the opportunity to play at the Perth Concert Hall was truly special feat for a musician of her age.

“As a student who’s just graduated high school and is nowhere near professional yet, it will definitely be a very special and memorable experience,” she said.

Miss Huning said she had been practising her nine minute long performance of Jean Sibelius’ Violin Concerto in D minor, 3rd movement for a few months.

“I cannot really pinpoint one single thing I love most about playing the violin, but I can say that what drives me as a musician is a combination of my constantly evolving conscious experience of music as a language, and the attempt to actualize and express that music in exactly the way I feel it, in my case through playing the violin,” she said.

“I’m moving to London in September to study at the Royal Academy of Music for 4 years, where I will continue working hard in pursuit of my goal as a soloist.”
