A concert organised by a music club has lined up a young musician  from the Emerald Isle taking place at the weekend.

The latest event hosted by Leighton Buzzard Music Club will see the Irish panist Fiachra Garvey at the concert on Saturday February 25 at Leighton Buzzard’s Library Theatre.

He will be performing Chopin’s Barcarolle Op. 60, Schumann’s Kreisleriana and finishing off with Beethoven's Sonata No. 32 in C Minor Op.111

Fiachra is the winner of the AXA Dublin International Piano Competition amongst many others. He has performed in some of the most famous concert halls, including Wigmore Hall,Fazioli Hall, Italy and Philia hall, Tokyo.

The Sunday Times said that: “he brings a deep and infectious enthusiasm combined with insight and technical assurance.”

A spokesman for Leighton Buzzard Music Cloub has described the concert as one not to be missed.

Fiachra started learning the piano at the age of five but wasn’t intially looking to be a musician. He originally pursued a career as a veternarian but wanted to give music a chance as he would have been filled with regrets if he didn’t pursue the ambition.

The performance begins at 7.30pm with the doors opening 45 minutes before.
