David hoping to strike the Wright chord for first performance in home town Wisbech

HARPSICHORDIST David Wright has played to audiences all over Europe - but this month he will perform in his home town of Wisbech for the first time.

The musician will join Zarah Hible to perform “Trills and Frills” at Elme Hall Hotel on April 27, with all proceeds going to Tapping House Hospice, in King’s Lynn.

David, who received no musical training as a child, has performed in a host of countries as a prominent member of Red Priest.

His interest in music began after the death of his father, when he was nine, and he taught himself to play piano and organ.

At the age of 16 he had his first piano lesson and learned to read music, later going on to study harpsichord at Trinity College of Music.

David graduated with distinction from the Royal College of Music in 2003, where for two consecutive years he won the Richard the Third and Century Fund Prizes.

He works regularly with some of the world’s leading ensembles and musicians, and often performs on radio and television.

“We hope that the local community will support David and Zarah by attending their performance and at the same time will be supporting their local hospice, Tapping House.”

Zarah is a regular recitalist at Handel House and is well known on the operatic stage.
