We have been very fortunate in the recent donation of a wonderful grand piano and to take advantage of this gift, Sally Wigan, a local professional pianist has offered to perform in a series of monthly recitals. She recently played for the Friday Play Café and it was well received by adults and babies alike!
Sally was born in Chester and gained her Masters degree from the Royal College of Music in 2009 under Andrew Ball. She then studied with Kalman Drafi at the Franz Liszt Academy, Budapest, as winner of the 2009 Joseph Weingarten Scholarship.
Sally has performed across the UK, Switzerland and Hungary in such prestigious venues as Wigmore Hall, the Purcell Room, Symphony Hall Birmingham, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Kings Place Concert Hall and the Franz Liszt Concert Hall in Budapest and has been selected as a Park Lane Group Young Artist for the past three consecutive years, to great critical acclaim.
The inaugural recital will take place on Monday 18 November at 1:30pm in the church and will consist of works by Bach, Debussy, Liszt and Gershwin.
It will be a short recital of about 30 minutes and refreshments will be served after the concert. Future recitals are planned for 16th December and 20th January.
Please come if you can. These are free concerts although donations to cover costs would be appreciated.
