World Class pianist performing at Kirlleatham

Lean-over-pianoWorld class pianist Gülsin Onay returns from a tour of the USA to play at Sir William Turner’s Almshouses at Kirkleatham this week.

 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.
