Rare local appearance for Helfgott
DAVID Helfgott will make a rare local appearance on November 28, in support of the fundraising efforts of local real estate agent Adam Cross for cancer research.
Adam is taking part in the Celebrity Dance for Cancer in February, organised by the Coffs Harbour Cancer Council, and has organised for the internationally acclaimed pianist to give a concert at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery.
David has recently returned from a sell-out European tour and his concert will include works by the great romantics Beethoven and Chopin, as well as the virtuosic works of Liszt.
Known for his passionate performances worldwide, as well as his inspiring life story as captured in the Oscar-winning film Shine, David will be performing the concert at no cost, with all proceeds to be donated to Cancer Council.
Champagne and canapes have been donated by caterer Fiasco.
For tickets ring Adam Cross from NSW Real Estate in Coffs Harbour on 0421 854 936. Tickets are $65 each.
