On 11 June, the 2023 Annual Concert took place at the majestic Szustra Palace, earlier than in previous years. The nature around the palace was breathtaking and the summer atmosphere filled the air with birdsong.
The beauty of the Annual Concert lies in the diversity of the repertoire, the artistic commitment of the participants and the atmosphere of togetherness and respect for the arts. It is also a moment of joy and pride for the parents, who can proudly watch their children perform.
The Annual Concerts are moments that evoke emotions, inspire, but also educate and develop artistic passions. They are not only artistic events, but also a celebration of music and an expression of respect for the talent and effort of the artists who share their talent with the public. It is a moment when music becomes a common language and unites people’s hearts in a single sound.

Annual Concert 2023 – Performance by Ella Bai
The concert ended with a performance by Ella Bai. Her performance was of the first movement of Henryk Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto. Ella delighted us not only with her brilliant performance of the technical movements of Wieniawski’s concerto, but above all with her depth of musical expression and beautiful tone.
This was a wonderful encouragement for those students who, like Ella, are taking their first steps at our Unisono Author’s Music School. Ella has been studying at our school since she was very young. You can meet her through the photos in our ABRSM exam reports:
- Diplomas awarded by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music with ABRSM with distinction
- All Our Students Passed ABRSM Exams
From the very beginning of her musical adventure, Ella has shown exceptional ability and dedication to perfecting her art. Her constant effort and work on her musical skills has resulted in an impressive level of performance. Teachers and the whole school community have watched with pride as she has grown artistically, learning new skills and exploring the art.
The concerts, including the Annual Concert, were not only an opportunity for Elly to showcase her talent, but also a unique artistic experience. Her performances were not only awe-inspiring in their technical mastery, but more importantly conveyed the depth of musical expression and emotion that flowed from each note.
Ella was an inspiration to other students, encouraging them to continually improve and follow their artistic dreams. Her positive attitude and dedication to music created a unique atmosphere in our school and attracted others to follow their musical ambitions.
We are delighted that Ella remembers our school with such appreciation and fondness. Her presence among our students has left a lasting mark and proves that our Unisono Music School is a place where you can discover and develop your artistic talents, surrounded by the support of teachers and the music community. Ella will now continue her studies at the most prestigious classical music university in the USA.
As usual, after the concert, all the performing students gathered on stage to receive congratulations for their successful performances and to thank the teachers for their fruitful work. The headteacher also thanked the parents and grandparents for their help and support in the musical development of their children.
The concerts give the students a goal to achieve. The opportunity to showcase their skills on stage gives them extra motivation to work hard on their repertoire. By seeing and hearing other talented performers, they become more inspired and determined to improve their skills. Concerts turn the study of music theory into a practical experience. Students have the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice, which helps them to better understand and master music.
