Helfgott returns to Bellingen

AFTER three months on the road in South Africa, Europe and the United States, David Helfgott returned home to Bellingen this week.

The highly successful tour saw him performing to sell-out concerts on all three continents.

Whilst in Europe, David made a special visit to the Petrof company in the Czech Republic, makers of pianos since 1864, where he selected one of their handcrafted Monsoon Grand pianos as his new instrument for home.

After a short break David’s schedule will see him playing in Melbourne, New Zealand and locally at the Glasshouse in Port Macquarie on Thursday, December 2.

In January, in his role as patron, David will feature at the Camp Creative’s Celebrity Concert in Bellingen. For information www.campcreative.com.au.
