Buxton Musical Society is becoming an accepted proving ground for young musicians who look set to become the great musicians of the future.
On Sunday next, June 19, in St John’s Church, Michael Williams and the Musical Society Orchestra will feature an outstanding, 19-year-old Jordanian pianist of Palestinian origin in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 19 in F.
Iyad Sughayer was born in Amman in October 1993. At the age of five, he began piano lessons at the National Music Conservatory in Amman.
He was awarded a full scholarship at the age of 11 to the world famous Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow but decided to accept a place at the prestigious Chethams School of Music in Manchester.
He continues his studies at Chethams, at the same time building an extraordinary international reputation.
This is a wonderful opportunity for Buxton music lovers to hear this young musician as he grows from child prodigy to a mature artist. Michael Williams will also conduct performances of two great popular classics, Mendelssohn’s great Italian Symphony and Schubert’s Symphony No.3.
The concert, sponsored by TARMAC, will take place on June 19 in St. John’s Church at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the Opera House Box Office, or at the door.
