She was chosen to play at the Tygerberg Eisteddfod Prestige Concert onSeptember 21st, where she received prizes for “Best in 4 years tuition” in any two categories as well as “Overall Best Performance” in the flute category.
A highlight for her was being chosen to play in the Galway Flute Festival at the Baxter Theatre and the prestigious Starlight Classics Concert at Vergelegen in Somerset West in 2015. She was the youngest flautist selected and was privileged to play with Sir James and Lady Galway, who themselves are considered to be among the top flautists in the world.
She has been playing the flute for 4 years and is currently taking lessons with Liesl Stolz, a well-known flautist and a lecturer at UCT.
El Shaddai Christian School would like to applaud Zoé on her dedication and excellence towards music and look forward to many more musical achievements.
