“The Royal South Street Society gave a memorable contribution to my music career in 2012. It gave me an exposure to performing in different conditions and settings, and it has helped me receive critiques open-mindedly to improve on my performances.

A message from Jack...Here is a video of my performance of Nightfall's Lament last Friday; this composition of mine was inspired by Rachmaninov's emotional intensity in his Elegy in E-flat Minor, which gave me the motivation to create this piece, exploring the emotion of sorrow and its complexities.I want to say thank you all for the kind and beautiful words that you have given me. It's heartwarming to see the response that my music has given such appeal to you. I've made the start of my journey at uni, and so far, all is going well. Thank you all so much once again. Best of luck to those of you making the starting steps of uni like I am.Jack
