Dynamic duo set to perform a glam-baroque concert at Wisbech Grammar School
TWO top musicians are set to bring a stylish dash of glam-baroque to their debut concert of ‘Trills and frills’ in Wisbech on September 15.
International keyboardist David Wright, who has made his home in Wisbech, and mezzo-soprano Zarah Hible, who has been described as a ‘brilliant and infectious talent’ in the ‘Athens Times’, are to make their first appearance together in the town in a concert of Georgian music in period costume at Wisbech Grammar School.
Born in Bethnal Green in the East End of London, David Wright received no musical training as a child, but he discovered the piano and organ at the local church, and taught himself to play by ear, nurturing a love of the music of Bach and Mozart.
At the age of 16, he had his first piano lesson and learned to read music, afterwards going on to study harpsichord at Trinity College of Music, where he won the Ella Kidney prize for early music.
He later graduated with distinction from the Royal College of Music, where for two consecutive years he won the Richard the Third and Century Fund Prizes.
Zarah read English literature at the University of Durham, before gaining a distinction for both her Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music diploma in vocal performance, and for her Licentiate of Trinity College London vocal recital. She is a regular recitalist at Handel House with David Wright.
The dynamic duo are set to make their Wisbech debut on Saturday, September 15 at 7.30pm at Wisbech Grammar School. Admission is �5 and tickets can be ordered by contacting Mrs A. Sanders at Wisbech Grammar School, North Brink, Wisbech, Cambs, PE13 1JX, (telephone 01945-583631) or clicking on www.brinkfest.co.uk .
