1st March 2014 at 7.30pm - Alington Hall, Shrewsbury School.
Last season we experienced two very special piano recitals of the very highest quality: the first was performed by the distinguished Peter Donohoe and the second by our very own Galin Ganchev. In previous years we have seen amazing performances by Nikolai Demidenko, Freddy Kempf and Joanna Macgregor to name a few.
This season promises to maintain the stunning quality of the piano recitals that we are fortunate enough to experience at Shrewsbury.
