Autumn 2023 Afternoon Student Concerts


Ilkley Concert Club was proud to showcase students from the RNCM by presenting our third series of Thursday autumn afternoon recitals.

They treated us to a wide range of music and ensembles of an amazing standard.  The students loved performing in the Kings Hall to such enthusiastic audiences and gained so much in the preparation for the performance as well as the day itself.  Audiences of over 100 for each performance shows how much Ilkley welcomes such talent: So watch out for some future stars!  Thank you: Catelina, Olias Saxaphone Quartet, Cosmos Trio, Marianne Huang Yueyin and Aestus String Quartet and the RNCM.
