Seventeen-year-old Waikato University cellist Santiago Canon Valencia will give his final performance recital at the University of Waikato on Thursday 8 November before he heads overseas to continue studying and cement his international career.

 The performance will be his final exam recital for the Bachelor of Music soloist specialisation degree he is completing and will also act as a fundraising concert, with all proceeds going to Santiago to help with his overseas study fees.

 "It's a really bittersweet feeling. On the one-hand I'm really sad to leave and say goodbye to all the wonderful people that have supported and influenced me over the past seven years, while on the other hand, I'm excited to begin a new chapter of my life," says Santiago.

 The performance will be held at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts on Thursday 8 November at 8pm.

Tickets will only be available on the door, cash only; $20 adults, $10 students and children, $50 family (2 adults, 2 children).
