Absolutely amazing! I love that song, it is among my favorites and she just blew it away! Sent me looking for other recordings by her. The concert must have been incredible.
The concert was amazing, and she completely stole it.
It was a surprise birthday outing for me, and although I knew I was going to a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, I did not know what I was actually going to see.
It turned out to be Classical Spectacular, a most incredible concert which puts special effects to short excerts of some of the most famous and most loved pieces of classical music. And the effects were something extraordinary: everything from an enormous lighting rig, tons of laser effects, smoke machines, strobe lights, jets of flame, indoor fireworks, 20 musketeers, 4 thundering cannons, rotating projectors, etc. etc. To go with it, they also had everything from ballet dancers to opera singers, and, of course, Melissa Venema.
I had never heard of her before the concert, but her solo just blew everything else away. Because it was a classical concert, she performed an adapted final movement of Haydn's Trumpet Concerto.

The concert was just amazing to be at, and I feel honoured to have been able to see so many talented and even very young performers.
