A chance to hear top pianist
Published 09/06/14



A SUMMER concert at the Christ Church Centre will give music-lovers the chance to hear the talents of a top pianist.

David Smith, who regularly performs at the Wigmore Hall among other top venues, will play with the Henley Choral Society at their Shakespeare and Summer Songs concert on Saturday, June 14.

The society’s chairman Melissa Maple said: “We have the opportunity to hear David’s wonderful playing every Monday at rehearsal, but I am delighted that this concert provides the opportunity for everyone to experience David’s exceptional talents in a concert setting.”

David graduated with distinction from the Royal Academy of Music, and was awarded the Shinn Junior Fellowship. Competition successes include the final of the Birmingham Accompanist of the Year, the Vivian Langrish accompanist’s prize, and Michael Head and Bliss Prizes for accompaniment.

In great demand as a collaborator with established artists, such as Sir Willard White and Sarah Tynan, as well as leading singers of his generation, David Smith was chosen as an HSBC Laureates of the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence and regularly performs at major venues including St John’s Smith Square, Colston Hall and Symphony Hall, Birmingham.


Melissa Maple said: “This varied programme — from Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, through a range of folk songs, part songs and madrigals, and including a couple of Shakespeare Songs by blind jazz composer George Shearing — gives the audience the opportunity to hear David’s subtle and sensitive interpretations across a range of genres. A real treat.”

The audience will also hear the 100-strong chorus and members of the young chamber group, Amici Voices.

• Shakespeare and Summer Songs is at the Christ Church Centre, Henley on Saturday, June 14 at 7.30pm. For tickets call Jan French on (01491) 572795 or visit Gorvett & Stone in Duke Street, Henley. For more information see www.henleychoralsociety.org.uk
