The Governor and Ms Annus attended a fabulous concert this evening at the Perth Concert Hall presented by Musica Viva.

For this special one-off concert, piano prodigy Shuan Hern Lee was joined by the Perth-based Sartory String Quartet, comprised of violinists Paul Wright and Pascale Whiting, violist Katherine Potter, and cellist Sophie Curtis with Andrew Sinclair on the Double bass.

“Musica Viva true to its name has kept music alive in Western Australia during the pandemic. They have used the fact there are many West Australians here who have not necessarily had the chance to show their capacity broadly to the West Australian community,” the Governor said.

“The pianist was superb playing Chopin as were the wonderful string quartet and double bass.

“19 year old pianist Shuan Hern Lee first performed at Government House at the age of four. He certainly has come a long way,” the Governor remarked.

The Governor is patron of Musica Viva, who also coordinate the Music in Schools program currently run at Government House. The program aims to showcase the importance of music in education.
