Pianist Mark Nixon in concert
SOUTHERN CAPE NEWS - The George Music Society proudly presents the talented South African born pianist Mark Nixon, who is creating a successful career in England.
He will perform beautiful classical compositions by, amongst others, Liszt, Brahms and Debussy at the Arts Theatre on Friday 27 July at 19:30.
Nixon is a graduate of the University of Cape Town, University of South Africa, the Amsterdam Conservatory and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. His teachers have included Laura Searle, Lamar Crowson, Håkon Austbø and Graham Johnson. He was the Anthony Saltmarsh Junior Fellow at the Royal College of Music for two years.
Mark has received many prestigious awards, including first prize in both the Adolph Hallis Piano Competition in 1994 and the Nederburg-Unisa National Piano Competition in 1998. In 1997 he was awarded the two most sought-after scholarships in the country: the Samro Scholarship for Pianists and the Unisa P J Lemmer Scholarship for Performers. In 2000 he was selected a 'Young Concert Artist' (solo piano) of the National Federation of Music Societies in the United Kingdom (now known as 'Making Music'). In 2008 he was again selected, this time as a duo with the soprano Erica Eloff.
He has performed as concerto soloist with all the South African orchestras, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and with several orchestras in England. As solo recitalist and pianist-accompanist, he has performed widely in South Africa, as well as at the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room and Linbury Theatre Covent Garden in London.
Tickets for this highly anticipated performance will cost R90 for the public, R60 for members of the George Music Society and George Society of Arts and R20 for learners.
