World Famous Pianist to Perform in Town

A world-renowned pianist is making her Shrewsbury debut this weekend with a charity concert featuring the music of Chopin.

Anna Fedorova is a 31-year-old Ukranian musician who grew up with musical parents, and made her national debut at the National Philarmonic Society of Ukraine - at the tender age of just seven.

Having performed with national orchestras around the world, Anna is making a whirlwind stopover in Shrewsbury on Sunday, October 3, to support the fundraising efforts of St Alkmund's Church. The venue hosts two international recitals each Autumn which are organised by retired GP Dr Peter Barritt.

He said: "We are so lucky to have world-class performers who are prepared to play in Shrewsbury. St Alkmund's has excellent acoustics and the absence of pillars in the church gives everyone in the audience a good view of the performer."

The concert will begin with Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, and then feature many of Chopin's most famous works including The Ballades.

Tickets are available online and are £18, under 16s are free, refreshments will be available.
