The Municipal Music School offers a piano concert as the start to the Easter week activities

Students from the Mojácar Municipal Music School offered an open-air concert last Sunday in which they performed works by composers such as Tchaikovsky and Brahms, among others.

The Plaza del Frontón in Mojácar was the place from where the notes of the great composers of all time filled the village with music and harmony under the baton of the Mojácar Municipal Music School piano teacher, Yolanda Parra Niederhauser.
The concert began with student Elisa Dochia, who also did the programme drawing, performing Swan Lake, one of the best-known works by Russian romantic composer Piort Llich Tchaikovsky, ending her performance with the anonymous score Greensleeves.
Alex Ignat performed the Hungarian Dance by Johannes Brahms and a minuet by J.S. Bach. Roberto Sola Parra delighted with the Nuvole Bianche by Ludovico Einaudi and Sofya Kofanova with the well-known “Sugar Star Planetarium” by Pedro Silva and “Alla Turca” by Mozart.
The students Enya Martínez KESEC and Antonio Lucas Montoya continued, with “Remember Me” from the soundtrack of Coco and “Schindler’s List” from the soundtrack of the well-known film of the same name and “Papillón” and “Endless Love”, respectively.
Yolanda Parra has for almost 20 years been in charge of training the very youngest, between three and seven years old, in the musical initiation classroom. She is also the piano teacher at the Municipal Music School, which has more than 30 students divided into different learning levels.
The Municipal Music School, with about 120 students, offers possibilities for learning nearly all instruments: wind, woodwind and brass; percussion; guitar and string instruments in general and piano, being the source of most of the Municipal Music Band members. It also has a singing classroom. The registration period for the next course will open in May.
The music classes and for learning to play the piano, as well as any instrument for which the Mojácar Municipal Music School has teachers, officially begin with the school year, although anyone who’s interested can join at any time. No matter the age or level, it is never too late to start and, in any case, music improves intellectual capacity and memory, both in children and adults.
