Just 10 days to go before our next concert so I hope the date is firmly in your diary!
We are very please to welcome the wonderful Irish pianist Michael McHale who's programme includes the Beethoven Sonata in C sharp minor ("The Moonlight"), a number of beautiful virtuosic pieces by Chopin including the F minor Ballade and Mussorgsky's Picture at an Exhibition.
Belfast-born Michael McHale has established himself as one of Ireland’s leading pianists and has developed a busy international career as a solo recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician.
He has performed as a soloist with the Minnesota, Hallé, Moscow Symphony and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestras, the London Mozart Players, and all five of the major Irish orchestras, and performed at the Tanglewood Festival, Wigmore Hall, London, Berlin Konzerthaus, Suntory Hall, Tokyo, Lincoln Center, New York, Symphony Hall, Boston and Pesti Vigadó in Budapest. 2016/17 performances include concerto performances with the City of London Sinfonia and the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra in Florida, and a début concert at the Tokyo Spring Festival. Future engagements include a début in the Dublin National Concert Hall's International Concert Series performing the Schumann Concerto with the City of London Sinfonia.
This concert is being sponsored by Gill Smyth and is dedicated to the memory of Anthony Copley who died in July 2016. Anthony was a great friend of Whitstable Music Society and greatly enjoyed attending our concerts particularly the piano recitals so I'm sure he would have appreciated this concert in his memory.
Hope to see you at the concert.
