Miss Onay, the principal pianist with the Presidential Symphony Orchestra of Turkey, toured New York, Boston, Washington and Houston only ten days ago. Her visit to the North-East takes her to only two selected venues, one on Tyneside and the other at Sir William Turner’s Almshouses in Kirkleatham near Redcar.
Immediately after her North-East tour, Miss Onay travels to perform in Turkey and then returns for recitals in Cambridge and London.
“We are privileged and honoured that a pianist of such high ranking international status is willing to bring her music to East Cleveland,” said concert organiser Peter Sotheran. The programme includes music by Beethoven, Liszt, Saygun and a Chopin Sonata.
The concert takes place at Sir William Turner’s Almshouses, Kirkleatham on Thursday 9th May at 7.30 pm. Tickets cost £12.50 from 01642 477200 with a credit card or from Greensleeves music shop in Guisborough. Alternatively, leave a message at any time on 01642 482828 to reserve tickets to collect on the night.
