TOMORROW, Wednesday, May 21, Pianist Kylie Loveland and violinist Alys Rayner will perform as part of the Wesley Music Centre’s popular Lunchtime Live series.


Their program includes Corelli’s “Violin Sonata Op.5”, Australian composer Raymond Hanson’s “Idyll in d minor Op.2” and Eugène Ysaÿe’s “Poème élégiaque Op.12.”

In August this year she will travel to North Carolina to study with Barbara Lister-Sink, a world renowned specialist in injury-preventative keyboard technique.

Rayner began learning the violin from Mrs Margaret Moore in Albury, later studying in Canberra with Barbara Jane Gilby. She has performed at AYO Music camps, with Canberra Youth Orchestra, with the Wesley Music Scholarship program and in ‘Trio Telopea’ with her sister Emma and pianist Emily Buckley.
