Event description

Description

Nicholas McCarthy piano recital and motivational concert (date has changed from 15th to 29th February)

Nicholas McCarthy was born in 1989 without his right hand and only began to play the piano at the late age of 14 after being inspired by a friend play Beethoven's Waldstein Sonata. His concert performances, recordings and media features have gained critical acclaim. However his ongoing commitment to encouraging new audiences to classical music along with his work with young people through music education is ever present in his schedule.

Having once been told that he would never succeed as a concert pianist, Nicholas would not be discouraged and went on to study at the prestigious Royal College of Music in London. His graduation in July 2012 drew press headlines around the world, being the only one-handed pianist to graduate from the Royal College of Music in its 130 year history.

Having performed extensively throughout the UK including major venues including The Royal Albert Hall. Internationally Nicholas has toured and performed in France, Belgium, Holland, South Africa, , Malta, Kazakhstan, Japan, China, South Korea the U.S. and most recently a concerto tour in Russia.

One of Nicholas's proudest moments was performing with the British Paraorchestra at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Paralympic games where they played alongside Coldplay and gave a rendition of the Paralympic anthem in front of an audience of 86,000 people and half a billion worldwide viewers.
